I was lucky to get invited to go with a group who registers turtles. Within half an hour, I witnessed 31 tortugittas’ first encounter with the world above the sand. I helped carry turtles from 6 different nests to the water – so they would not get stucked in sargasso or eaten by birds.
About 2 am we found a turtle mama who prepared her nest. She was not afraid at all.
They were respectively tortugas blancas and Cagaumas
Nest with 94 tortugittas!
If you are lucky enough to find these amazing creatures,
Never use flash!
And you need a special red lamp or moon shine – no white torch 🙂
