Turtle nesting beach

This 23-mile-long beach hosts the largest green turtle rookery in the Western Hemisphere. Only official tours are allowed on the beach when turtles lay eggs at night, and photography is not permitted. I have found a video - – where you can see the process, and the album shows what one can see on the beach in the morning: turtle tracks, black vultures hunting for eggs, etc.
