Hawksbills are making their way to the sea!

This is a critically endangered species and we were very lucky TRACC found the nest, and that the relocation was successful with a 73% hatching success and all but three hatchlings making it to the surface on their own. This nest had 132 eggs and 90 hatchlings made it to the sea and the rest seemed to die by natural causes. They decided to come out at night and so there are not many photos but the last few were released at sunset.
