    Sea turtles hatch on Assateague Island, first time in Md. history
    A nest of tiny sea turtles shocked and delighted officials on Assateague Island National Seashore—and made history.

    Loggerhead sea turtles typically lay their eggs on beaches from Florida to North Carolina. It’s rare for them to hatch anywhere north of Virginia.

    But that’s what happened toward the end of September on Assateague.
