Olive ridley sea turtle (Golfina)

Lepidochelys olivacea


Bucket full of newly hatched Golfina turtles. They were scheduled for release to the sea at sunset when predators are not around (mainly sea birds). Last pic is the place were the turtles' eggs are kept for protection from predator particularly men.

I wish I could be helping these turtles, but I was only on vacation on the beach. I live far away from the sea.
