Pleasure Island Sea Turtles Nest Hatching, July 21, 2010

I came across this video by Dave Halpern it is by far the best one I have seen. This nest was south of Carolina Beach in Kure Beach, NC. Notice all the little Loggerhead Sea Turtles scrambling their way to the sea. Some need a little help to stay on track in the trench. They look so tiny and helpless, yet precious, beautiful and determined to soon take their place in the big blue sea. I hope this next summer we will be able to see one of the nests hatching.
