Circle of Life, pt. 2

Fredrik Eriksson ’16 writes about how we got to release baby turtles into the sea.

Adventure Ramblings

The morning after the great egg laying, Erik (who we met by chance the previous night) came by camp in the middle of breakfast with a surprise: in a cooking-show-esque move, he had brought us baby sea turtles (incubation normally takes two months). He left the baby turtles in our care with instructions to bring them to the beach and send them on their way. Not surprisingly, most of our breakfast remained uneaten for hours as we scooted off to the beach.
