Description:
Each spring adult female turtles around the world embark on a deadly journey key for the survival of their species. This journey takes them from their relatively safe aquatic and wetland habitats and sends them straight through a gauntlet of life threatening situations on their way to their final destination. By helping a turtle across the road and documenting here, you can show the world that you are doing your part to save the environment.

The beach of Ostional is the scenery for a rarely-seen biological wonder. Around the third quarter of the moon, hundreds, and sometimes hundreds of thousand sea turtles come to one specific mile of beach at Ostional to dig their eggs into the black, volcanic sand.

A big old Eastern Box Turtle was slowly trudging across the road when I suddenly recognized the situation for what it was and screeched to a halt, running out onto this busy road and stopping all manner of traffic!
