Thank you Sam, Amy and Ben!

Our young turtle nest sponsors should be very proud last night as they have sponsored a very successful nest! At 9pm we had our latest hatching of baby Hawksbill turtles, from a lay of 129 eggs, we had 120 baby turtles witnessed by many of our guests from all over the world.  We counted the turtles then released at the end of our island in a safe place, it was a moon lit night so perfect conditions for a release.

It is a wonderful experience to watch the babies running to the sea, as it was such a lovely night, it was no problem to witness the babies making their rapid crawl downwards.  Today we had some other children watching, two young boys from Germany who I feel also really enjoyed the experience.
