 Leatherback Babies Released

After 10 years of not one visit from Leatherback Sea Turtles, which are the largest turtles in the world, this week the Los Barriles Sea Turtle protection group released 17 baby turtles back to sea. Local Biologist Graciela Tiburcio said that there are 4 more nests waiting for baby leatherbacks to hatch and be tossed back to sea. Sea Turtles are an endangered species in Mexico’s coasts. This is a picture of one of the babies.
