On the shores of Tortuguero in Costa Rica, one of life’s wonders happens for a few weeks every year: hatching baby sea turtles. These beauties are heavily protected in the area.
After emerging for the sand, the endangered green sea turtles make a dash for the safety of the Caribbean Sea… and it’s pretty cute.

Sleepy-eyed after emerging from the nest…
…which they incubate in for up to 60 days
Once they warm up, these turtles can move!
But occasionally just need a little rest
The end goal is finally in sight for this little green sea turtle…
Which is smaller than the palm of your hand
The waves bring a relative place of safety…
… and this little guy MADE IT!
