From the moment they are born, these plucky Green Turtles from the Ascension Islands will face a huge battle to survive. Those that do survive, like their mothers did before them, will return to exactly same beach where they hatched.

So, mankind has been most devastating to predators of these noble creatures. Ya can't win....
verne davis (1 month ago)
So inspiring. Member viewing quite similar natural films 40-50yrs ago, with damnable film makers showing predators taking half tryin' to get to water, other predators in water.Jeezsh!

There’s a lot of comments saying birds shouldn’t be able to get em but it’s just the way things are like lol
Squirrely456 (3 months ago)
For the people who want to be able to help them into the sea after hatching- even if you did that it would make very little difference in how many reach reproductive age, and therefore very little difference in the survival of the species. It's a nice thought, but the place people should help them is when they are adults or almost so and prone to getting caught in fishing nets and drowned. That's their biggest threat, so start with fishing boats if you want to save the turtles.

The only thing human babies know is to eat, yet the first thing a turtle baby do is to run toward the sea. They sure know and can do a lot as newborns.
Jesse (10 months ago)
Well, at least some make it It would be horrible if all of them died. Then there would be no turtles

When the baby sea turtles reach the water, it looks like the water is murdering them, in my opinion
CJ Suburban (11 months ago)
Turtles are such amazing creatures; really saddens me that very few survive
Joe Whitehead (1 year ago)
Seems to me like turtles that are hatched near the more gentler waters would have the most chance at surviving

How do they drown if they are sea turtles?

They might get stuck under the sand and suffocate/drown

How they hatch alone and try to reach the sea waters is enough to believe that GOD exists. And he is one. Allahu akbar

but in finding nemo they just literally see each other and be back in each other's arms... it's probably just nature.. oh! and they also live a hundred and 50 years.
Jay Lian (1 year ago)
So planet earth recently taught me that, because a lot of cities are next to the beaches these days, baby turtles mistake the artificial lights as the moon when they're born at night, so they climb towards that and then, gets crushed by cars or dying from exhaustion from crawling towards nothing.. wow these turtles have it tough

I KNOW RIGHT it is so cute to watch the baby turtles run for the ocean on the scorching sand although all that awaits them there is a current that will end up washing most of them out to the ocean in which they will drown.

"See the turtle of enormous girth!On his shell he holds the earth. His thought is slow but always kind; he holds us all within his mind. On his back all vows are made; he sees the truth but mayn't aid. He loves the land and loves the sea, And even loves a child like me."

I know it isn't natural, but we should be allowed to stop seagulls and land predators from attacking them. I mean is it really necessary for a seagull, one of the most common birds, really need a meal of potentially long living sea turtles? I know most won't make it, but we could at least improve the chances.
Caleb Hogue (1 month ago)
No we really shouldn’t it’s nature it’s the circle of life you do not interfere with it
Breeann Best (1 month ago)
Lego Ki-Adi -Mundai They’re are millions of seagulls and only a little more than 500,000 sea turtles. We need to protect them. Seagulls have fish.
zacharycat (2 months ago)
Best way to improve the chances for turtles (and for ALL marine life) is to stop polluting the oceans.
Indecisive N.E.E.T (4 months ago)
Perseus Jackson They’re going extinct and many die in the ocean anyway, so this helps them
Kassandra Quintero (10 months ago)
Yeah as others have commented, these cycles prevent over population of species. And as sad as it is, alot of sea turtles die of natural cause, marine predators and pollution. But rest assured that of the many that survive, they carry on their family line 👍
