Seaside Sleuths was the third turtle tagged from the 2006 Bald Head Island loggerhead tracking project. She came ashore to nest at about 11 pm on 27 July 2006. This turtle was 92.1 cm long (straight-carapace length) when she was tagged and was first seen nesting on Bald Head Island in 1992. The Wisner family of Bald Head Island won the naming rights for this turtle in a charity auction hosted by the Bald Head Island Conservancy on July 3rd and named her "Seaside Sleuths", after the new books written by Helyn Wisner.
