Life Begins And Ends For The Tortugas On Coco Beach

Okay...... you can call me a slacker. It's not like I'm not busy doing things , I'm just not busy doing them here lately.

A couple of days ago, I was walking along the beach just in front of Natz Ti Ha and I saw a small group of people gathered 20 yards or so from the shoreline. Being the nosey type I am, I wandered over to see what was going on.

What I found was a sea turtle nest that was being examined by what I suppose were a couple of sea turtle experts given that they were crawling around in the sand and sticking their arms into the nest and writing a lot of things down in a notebook and on a clipboard. Plus, they were wearing badges which is always a giveaway.

They sorted and counted unhatched eggs and lined up little baby turtles that had died before they could get out of the nest. It was sad. They also very politely answered lots of questions from the small group of people that were standing by. I learned a few things about the turtles that I didn't know, which wasn't much to begin with. It was a good experience and I am happy to have been there to witness it. There is a bit of a happy ending to this story and if you click on the photo above, you'll find out why.
