Punta Banco is a village in Costa Rica where most people in the town are part of a turtle conservation project.
The turtles lay eggs on the beach and the eggs are subject to poaching and natural disaster. The conservation project takes the eggs off the beach and keeps them in a nursery. Once the eggs hatch, they put the baby turtles in buckets and return them to the ocean.
I like to take the new surf friends I meet down to Punta Banco so they can be a part of releasing the baby turtles to the ocean.
This morning we released 81 baby turtles into the Pacific Ocean. Here’s a clip:
