Loggerhead Sea Turtles
As I walking down the beach on a late summer night, I almost walked on a logger head’s nest. I thought about the long migration those turtles had to endure just to come to Florida to lay their eggs. I then realized that the baby turtles must be hatching soon and decided to watch them try to survive the adventure to the water. As soon as I made that decision, I witnessed out of the corner of my eye a slight movement in the sand by me. I became incredibly excited and then witnessed a tiny turtle struggle to come out of the sand. Remembering the laws I knew that I couldn’t help this turtle make the adventure to the water, he had to make that trip all by himself. Many dangers lie between him and that water. He could run into countless predators and die. When he finally reached the water, I was overjoyed with happiness for the baby turtle.
