The Kid Should See This

A night adventure to see Nicaragua’s sea turtles

Watch more with these video collections:

Conservation educator Phil Torres traveled to Playa la Flor and the surrounding waters in Nicaragua to document how Paso Pacifico is working to protect the sea turtles. From SeeTurtles.org:

Along Nicaragua’s Pacific coast, just south of San Juan Del Sur is the Refugio De Vida Silvestre La Flor, an important nesting area for olive ridleys, and well as hawksbill, leatherback, and green sea turtles. La Flor is one of only two olive ridley arribada nesting areas in Nicaragua. Here, the olive ridley nests “in mass” between the months of July and December. More than 100,000 olive ridley nests are laid on this beach each year. Worldwide, only a handful of arribada beaches exist; elsewhere they are solitary nesters like other sea turtle species.

Torres also learned that if you rub sea turtle shells, they can glow. Watch the whole video to see it, then watch more sea turtle videos and more videos in Central America on this site.
