Baby Sea Turtles

Living in Florida is not too bad.  These kids have seriously had some cool experiences.  Two summers ago  these three had the opportunity to help release 36 adult sea turtles back into the wild.  Today they had the way cool opportunity to release baby sea turtles back into the wild.  There were 5 loggerheads and 1 green sea turtle that they were able to help release.  We also got to see an excavated green sea turtle nest site. 




Oh, these sea turtles were so adorable.  We, well, I was cheering them on to the water!  The kids were more down into the thick of things watching each of their movements in the sand toward the water's edge.  Oh, and they were so tiny! 















After the sea turtles made it to the water, we came back up and the excavator opened up some eggs that did not hatch.  Hezekiah was all into it, he wanted to see what was inside those eggs.  We saw some underdeveloped turtles where partial shell had developed.  A lot just had the yolk and they mentioned sometimes the turtles lay spacer eggs.  It was a very cool experience.  We had to get up early, we left at 7:15 a.m. this morning, but it was well worth it.
