I wanted to share a few photos of an uninhabited island where baby sea turtles are born. It was an amazing ( wet) trip by boat. The friends we visited in Bocos work with the Smithsonian doing research on the local wildlife. That's how we got the inside scoop on the baby turtles.
Just a simple dock and a thatched roof hut house a couple of researchers from May til Nov on this far off island. No foot prints but our own. Oh, lookie. Another storm rolling in!
This nest hatched a couple of days ago, so the researcher dug the hatched nest up to count the eggs.
Add we were lucky enough to see a baby hatchling! Still camouflaged by sand it was trying to make its way down to the waters edge. I have a cute little movie I made using my camera and once I figure out how to put it on here I will.
