Baby turtles enter the sea for the first time

Having watched the mother turtles lay their eggs in the sand of Grande Anse Kerlan back in November, our dedicated turtle manager has been keeping a watchful eye on the progress of the eggs.

The beaches of Lémuria play host to the nests of hawksbill and green turtles that return to its shores year after year to lay their eggs.

As they hatched, the baby turtles were gently gathered together and held until the conditions were perfect to aid the babies to scramble down the beach and into the water.
