Night Prospections 

Turtle season is in full throttle now, barely a night goes by when there isn’t at least a couple of sightings of both green and loggerhead turtles on the nightly patrols. On Monday night a group of volunteers even saw 6 turtles, some of which were nesting. There are more and more sightings from the boats and during dives as well. Seeing the turtles, who appear so clumsy on land; dig their holes so carefully and patiently to deposit their eggs really is an amazing thing to witness.
