... us again. We made our excuses and headed off back to the turtle hatchery early, where we found Jenny and a handler digging out some more babies to put in the bath. We then helped them select the babies to be released; we had to turn them over and check their belly buttons - if they were closed they were good to go! After selecting 32, we put them in a bucket and carried them down to the shore. Jenny drew a line in the sand (the 'start line') and we each ...
