Steve and Miga found these turtle tracks on the beach this morning. The Olive Ridely Turtles climb the beach in the moonlight looking for just the right sand in which to lay their eggs. They dig a hole, using their flippers as delicately as teaspoons and drop 100-120 eggs into a hole about 6-8″ diameter and 3 feet deep. The sex of the baby turtle is determined by the temperature of ths sand around the egg, usually caused by its location in thenest. But increasingly, global warming is affecting the tempertuer of the sand and hence the sex of the hatchilings. That can’ t be good for the species.
