Going back home

, May 6, 2013

Baby green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas), known locally as the krape, crawl to the water from their nest on Babunsanti Beach in the Galibi nature reserve situated on the eastern edge of the Marowijne River estuary. Apart from natural threats from vultures, sand crabs and jaguars, game wardens also consider poachers to be a major danger to the survival of this endangered species of turtle as they steal their eggs to sell for consumption in the cities. - Reuters/Ranu Abhelakh
