First turtle hatchlings crawl toward the ocean

The first turtle hatchlings on Playa Tortuga for 2016

Turtles are hatching!

It’s been a busy turtle season here at Reserva Playa Tortuga! We’ve had several nests hatch already (including one emergency hatchery – moving a nest that was endangered by the tide). It’s quite a sight, watching all the baby turtles crawl across the sand and into the water.
