Sea turtle hatchlings are beginning to emerge! This is a magical time in Guanacaste– year after year, we are filled with hope as we watch these fragile creatures commence their long and arduous journey.
For those visiting the area during this time, please remember to never touch the hatchlings– their crawl through the sand is a vital process for the young turtles. And please keep lights away from the beach as these can confuse the turtles which are searching for the moon's reflection on the ocean.
