Saving the world, one baby turtle at a time

We headed out to Klein Bonaire and ended up saving 17 Hawksbill turtles!

Did you know that 25 % of turtle eggs don't hatch and that only 1 in 1000 baby turtles actually make it to adulthood? We had put out a Facebook donation request for Turtle Conservation Bonaire and were able to raise money to contribute to this amazing project. At the end of the video, I included several lessons learned from our experience that will hopefully help others who choose to save the turtles as well.
