Notice anything different? That's right! We have a new look! But that's not all that's new. Over the summer I had the opportunity to experience something amazing. On my family's annual beach trip, I met with some of the N.E.S.T. volunteers. On the last night I witnessed 60 sea turtles making their way to the ocean.
Sea Turtle Facts
Sea turtles are amazing creatures. They are reptiles like all turtles. They also have similar hard carapaces to land turtles, but sea turtles can not retract their legs into their shells. In fact, they don't have legs! They have flippers and a streamlined shell for swimming. There are seven species of sea turtles.
