Sand Saviors Help Baby Turtles Find Their Way!

Each evening at dusk, you'll find people walking along Palm Beach Shores in Florida. It's not just because the ocean is pretty enough to warrant a daily visit, but they're looking for movement in sea turtle nests there. When volunteers locate an active nest, they lend helping hands to the leatherbacks and dig channels to create a clear pathway to water for the babies.

Umm, I'm definitely adding baby turtles to my growing list of cute animals . . . look at those lil feet scramble! Thanks runnergeek for alerting me to this cool video!

I used to do this in high school! Of course, I had a crush on my marine biology teacher, so I participated in many extracurricular marine-related activities.

If I could, I would definitely be there scooping out paths for the sea turtles. I think it is a positive step to offset the negative impact that we've had on their environment, such as building condos in their area, clearing out natural weeds, grasses, etc. that alter their ecosystem. Plus, they are so stinkin' cute!

Not to put a damper on the turule cuteness, but isn't that nature's way of weeding out the weak? If they don't make it, they die and aren't able to pass on their genes? Don't take this the wrong way, I do love turtles, but it just seems like another way that humans are interfering with something that's worked for years and years prior.
