Turtles Turtles Everywhere…

August 23, 2010

A few years ago I had the amazing opportunity to witness 120 lovely turtles hatch and run into the sea. It was one the most beautiful moments I have ever experienced. Many friends on island are actively involved in the Sea Turtle Conservation. This amazing dedicated group of professionals and volunteers make a difference. Recently my friend Jamie Clark was part of a turtle count and assist here on Bonaire. The photo tells the story.

The Bonaire Insider recently reported 10 baby turtles crossed the street from Windsock Beach and were found lost and confused at the airport. The bright lights confused the babies who were misled thinking they were heading towards the moon. One sadly died but 9 were rescued to join their brothers and sisters. Once again the Sea Turtle Conservation was instrumental in this rescue.

Bonaire is full of turtle bliss this month…safe travels babies…
