I just watched the most beautiful baby turtles!

I am not going to take a nap. I am not sleepy. But I got into my bed because there my knees are not as painful. Cold is not good for my joints. I turned on the TV and I zapped it until I got Nat Geo Channel. A man in Cuba was digging the sand with his hands and many baby turtles were crawling up. The man protects the place where turtles place their eggs and knows when the turtles will come out so he helps them to take them out. He charges a very small fee to let any tourist that wants to take a turtle to the sea with their own hands. That money will help him continue to take care of the babies and will make people understand that animals have to be taken care of. They were so cute that I understand when people do exactly the opposite of what they should do and keep them captives as pets. But we must learn that wild animals should not be kept in cages. They should be free if we want to save our planet. Have you ever seen baby turtles walk to the sea? There should be someone nearby. Some of them get mixed up and walk away from the sea. And every turtle is needed in the planet

@marguicha That must have been so exciting. I've read many books about it. Florida has lots or areas where turtles lay their eggs and then the babies head toward the ocean once they hatch. Hopefully, we will get to witness it. The turtles from the pond across the street from us here in Connecticut seem to think laying their eggs on our lawn is the thing to do. Unfortunately, they have never hatched here.
