Now that Summer is in full swing, so is turtle hatching season. Its also the time we take our family vacations, here is a quick reminder for you. When you leave the beach and your child and you have made the neatest sand castle ever. Make sure you leave that sand flat as you found it. Why, you ask?
At night when a sea turtle nest is hatching, imagine all the little turtles falling into your castle’s moat’s getting trapped instead of reaching the ocean to start their lives.
Also be very vigilant if you are at the beach, we don’t want this to happen to your child.

Have a lovely Summer everyone and remember to slather the sun-protection cream on!
