Postcards from Fregate Island: helping turtle hatchlings survive

Let's Explore Ocean Adventures

In the third of our films from Fregate Island in the Seychelles, we visit Grand Anse beach to see how the island’s conservation team helps turtle hatchlings on their way from the nest to the shore; each turtle can lay up to five nests a season, containing on average 150-180 eggs, but only one out of all these hatchlings may make it to adulthood.

Predators dot their path to survival at every turn, from crabs on their route from nest to shore, to wading birds at the water’s edge and sharks in the sea, so the team helps in anyway they can to improve their chances.
