A Starry Begining

The best time to release baby sea turtles is when the tide is the weakest. Whether that is first thing in the morning or in the middle of the night, it always creates a unique experience. This little one day olive ridley sea turtle is dwarfed not only by the massive pacific ocean but the milky way and universe beyond!
