Over 10 Million Turtles Can Be Thankful For TAMAR

Founded in 1979, TAMAR has released around 10 million turtles into the sea since then. The National Marine Turtle Conservation Program in Brazil monitors over 600 miles of beaches with 20 stations covering the country. Rescuers seek nests by following turtle tracks in the sand. If the locations are deemed dangerous, they're moved to safer sites or open-air beach hatcheries to protect eggs from predators, tides, or other dangers to survive.

Because of close monitoring, more hatchlings survive and are watched to make sure they are set free to sea. As the last post in the Thankful Week, check out tiny turtles growing safely, swimming around and getting fed special medicine.
