Hawksbill Turtles Emerging Big Beach August 25,2004
by  Peter  Jones

Walking of the beach the other day Dr. Leisure was taken by the movement of a number of people toward the water. Usually it means somebody is in trouble and assistance is needed. At waters edge the word was "turtles." Not the usual green sea turtle which can be up to four feet or more in size but rather small ones of an inch or two. It turns out the newly emerged turtles were Hawksbill Turtles just out of the nest up the beach.
