    Baby Leatherback Turtles - First Journey into the Ocean

     

     

    This video was taken at the beach at Palm Beach Shores Florida at dusk.

     

     

    A group of volunteers walk the beach each evening to see if any of the sea turtle nests have activity.

     

     

    When an active nest is found, the volunteers "assist" the turtles by guiding them to the ocean through the use of a channel dug into the sand.
