"More loggerhead turtle nests were found on the Grand Strand this year compared with last, giving biologists hope that the threatened species will continue to thrive.

At least 70 nests were discovered in Horry and Georgetown counties, said Ann Wilson, an interpretive ranger at Myrtle Beach State Park.

About 40 nests were found last year on the Grand Strand, which was considered a "disaster" season by biologists and turtle volunteers."
