Cahuita/Playa Buena Vista » Tortugas 3

The second night a bunch of nests hatched and the baby turtles were released onto the beach. Almost all of this happened in the middle of the night so there aren’t pictures. During my shift watching the hatchery in the morning, however, Jessica and I noticed that some of the turtles had not made it out of the nests during the night. Here I am freeing one straggler from nest Q14. His name is Lone Ranger Turtle Action the First. I choose to ignore the high probability that Lone Ranger was eaten almost immediately upon entering the ocean and imagine that he’s still swimming around out there.
