Eventually the last of about a hundred baby turtles swam out into the Caribbean. When they left the land they became part of the food chain in the sea. Their odds aren’t good there. It is Nature’s way. It has been estimated that one in five hundred survive to adulthood. I like to think that some day a few of the babies I helped may return to the beach at Turtle Beach Lodge to lay their own eggs.
Turtles are said to return to the beach where they were born. It is my understanding that the largest threat to turtles and their eggs is from poachers. The turtles are killed for their meat. The eggs are dug up and sold as aphrodisiacs in the local bars and other places. It is illegal, but far too many eggs are taken every year for this activity. Part of the plan behind Eco-Tourism is to provide employment, and therefore income, for Costa Rican citizens through tourism.
Costa Rica is a wonderful, peaceful and stable country, experience life at it's best!
