Saving Sea Turtles in the Solomon Islands

From National Geographic and Seedlight Pictures: Willie Atu of The Nature Conservancy takes us on a ride around The Arnavon Islands to see endangered hawksbill and green sea turtles swimming in the clear water, as well as to nesting sites along the island beaches. Atu’s teams work to monitor and protect the turtles’ nests from predation.

Since the program’s inception, the number of sea turtles nesting in the Arvanons has increased by almost 400 percent.

Bonus: Hatching baby turtles safely scrambling for water!
