I joined a group of volunteers and tourists on excavations of sea turtles nests. These digs occur three days after initial hatchlings scurry to the Atlantic so the struggling stragglers left in the nest may be temporarily cared for and released. How encouraging to discover young people committed to learning proper techniques and carving out time to help these impressive animals. We knew in advance that Tuesdays were volunteer instruction mornings, which is why we went that particular day. We also found a new nest, and several aborted attempts by turtles to lay eggs. These mothers probably changed their minds because they were frightened. Also, in Juno Beach, hotels (Hilton, etc.) and their clients do not close window curtains at night, thereby often confusing tiny hatchlings, causing them to head toward the light and not ocean.
