Baby Sea Turtles

I was invited to witness and photograph a turtle nest survey and release last night by Diane Matthews, a State of Florida permit holder. A few days after the "emersion" of a turtle nest, Diane and her volunteers "survey" the nest site and record the number of shells, and release any turtles still alive and in the nest. Last night they recovered over 20 turtles and allowed them to return to the sea. This was a true "Happy Feet" event in action as these little turtles hustled off to their new life
