Hi Mary Beth,Yes, only one of thousand hatchlings will reach reproductive age. They are only the size of silver dollars at birth, so are very easy pray to fish and sea birds. So, they need to get as far away from the shore line as quickly as they can. This year 3926 hatchlings made it to the Gulf, so yes, that only mean 3 - 4 will call Marco it’s “hometown” this year…. Hopefully those will be all females!
