I've been living in French Guyana for three years. This place is known to welcome Leatherback turtles during few months. First, I saw adult turtles spawn. It was incredible, the turtle leaved the sea and crawled to the top of the beach with an extrem slowness. There, it starded to dig the sand and after half an hour, the hole was bigger enough to lay its little white turtle eggs, and went back in the sea. Few weeks later, eggs hatched and baby turles walked to the sea as fast as they can. Usually, eggs hatch at night ans turtles find the sea thanks to the moon reflection on the wated. But sometimes, baby turtles can't find the sea, so humans point a light few meters in front of them to make them moving towards the sea. So I did that with my parents, I also carry some turtles to the sea, until they all were into the sea. It was a magical experience, and I think I'm never gonna forget it, I wish I will do it again. If you have the opportunity to do it, you have to.

 Absolutely awesome. Watching the sun set on a small beach in Mexico. Realeasing hundreds of turtles to their new home is a great feeling. This is the start of their journey!

We happened across this while on a beach near Nuevo Vallarta in Mexico. They have a conservation project near the resorts there. That makes it easy to participate. We actually had the opportunity to hold the little turtles before their dash to the surf. It's a beautiful place and a neat experience!

I got to hold baby sea turtles as they hatched and gently put them on the sand and watch as a wave took them away, Mexico.

I feel so lucky to have seen this happen every week for three months in Costa Rica. Sea turtle conservation was one of the best experiences of my life. One of my favorite turtle-hatching memories was when I was guarding the hatchery by myself in the middle of the day and one baby turtle crawled up from a nest that hatched the previous night. It was amazing because it was just the turtle and I on a secluded beach and it was my duty and responsibility to guide him to safety.
