Again this year, BEP Foundation has been pleased to assist Friends of The Environment saving baby turtles. Early August this year, members of the network at FRIENDS saved some of the eggs and recreated a nest in a bin full of sand. Nearly all of the eggs hatched two weeks later and just under 40 hatchlings were realeased on their natal beach so they could find their way to the ocean.
Please note that turtles nest should not be disturbed in any way unless they are in danger (beach erosion). Thanks to report new nests or nests at risk to The Bahamas Sea Turtle Network so they can determine the appropriate response.
