    very nice to see the first steps of the life of a turtle. it must have been exhilarating feeling to initiate a living thing into the journey called life. kudos to you and all the people who spent quality time in the process.

    Its the least we can do...knowing the survival rate of these turtles is 1000:1. Hopefully a few we rescued will return to lay their eggs and life continues.

    A kid from the local village getting water from the sea and pouring it over the turtles eyes. The eyes usually get covered with sand when they come ashore.
