Padre Island National Seashore, Kleberg County, TX
Conservationists at Padre Island National Seashore collect and care for Kemp's Ridley Sea Turtle nests whenever they are found. When possible, they do a public hatchling release to educate us on how to ensure the species' survival. They do everything they can to make sure the turtles survive the nesting period, but once the babies are in the water, the only thing we can do is hope a few survive. Photo taken 6/25/2103.
