Volunteering at Sea Turtle Conservation: Dec 22

Patronage

Sea Turtle Sanctuary

This is where we drew inspiration to commence our first Below the Tides project. We had the opportunity to witness injured mature sea turtles in recovery at the center, with some having only three flippers, missing their left flip due to accidents. Additionally, we gained insights into the fascinating process of sex determination in sea turtles, which occurs during hatching. Warmer weather tends to produce more female hatchlings, while cooler weather favors the development of male ones. It's truly remarkable! However, due to global warming, there is a concern that the imbalance might lead to an outnumbering of females over males.
