TODOS SANTOS - Baby Sea Turtle Release

Griselda tending the sea turtle nests on the beach....On Sunday, October 3, 150 sea turtles were released on the Pescadero Beach about 300 yards South of Pescadero Palace, infront of Rancho Pescadero.  The worker in charge, Griselda, dug them up from their nests, and took them to the sea shore, where onlookers lined up and were able to assist in the release.  There are still over 10,000 eggs buried and, according to Griselda, there will be daily sea turtle releases at 5pm until all 10,000 eggs are hatched.

Here is the government worker, Griselda, explaining how the sea turtle eggs are buried for 45 days, and when hatched, the babies are released into the ocean.   

There will be daily releases at 5pm. For info and photos go to: www.todossantosrentals.net/SeaTurtles.html
