    ... is so low. Human activities surrounding the nests and eggs are so miniscule and have such a minimal effect in the grand scheme of things. Personally, i think the community should be allowed more percentage of the eggs as the wastage from the natural activity of the nesting turtles would reduce and there would be more chance of turtle survival. The community would benefit too. As Paul and I made our way down the beach we encountered a female turtle who was almost white and ...
