Baby turtles

While walking on the beach the other day I saw Frank, the turtle guy. He had just picked up a newly hatched batch of Olive Ridley turtles from the beach nursery. He had them in a box in his dune buggy to take to a cool spot until after sunset, when he would release them on the beach. If you are down here you can meet him at the town beach and watch (in the dark) the babies start their journey to their life at sea.

You can always stop by Frank’s house to talk turtle and see the nurseries.

What a great organization here in San Pancho!
