Mike's Ryukyu Gallery: Photo Essay: Baby Sea Turtle Release as as Educational Tool

Loggerhead Turtles and Children
This release at Maeda Point in Okinawa, Japan took place September 4, 2013.

The little sea turtles had hatched earlier that day. Baby Loggerheads (Caretta caretta) are about the size of my Swiss Army Knife.

At first, I was worried about trying to take photos with all the children handling them. But, they got a lesson from an expert in sea life preservation. There were plenty of parents and teachers on hand to supervise the project.
