Dauphin Island hatchlings

August 12, 2010 - Dauphin Island, Alabama. Loggerhead turtle hatchlings rest in a cooler before being transported to the eastern shore of Florida. The turtles hatched from a nest that was scheduled to be relocated, but when biologists dug up the nest, they found that the eggs had started to hatch. The nest was covered again so the turtles could hatch and be collected. Credit: Catherine J. Hibbard/USFWS www.fws.gov/home/dhoilspill/
