I had the amazing opportunity to stand on a beach in Tortuguero, Costa Rica (in the pouring rain!), in the middle of the night with no moon and no flashlights, and watch an Atlantic Green Sea Turtle lay her eggs. Truly an amazing experience! This is a picture of one of the nests on the beach. Under that sand lies quite a few turtle eggs!
