Day 6!!

What a long day! Today we got to work with the sea turtles! We all got up at 4 this morning to start the day. We all walked the beaches to find a turtle nest. My group found a swim, which is when the female turtle crawles on to the sand and tries to find a place to nest, but doesn't like the spot so swims back to the sea. My group did not find a nest this morning. However, the other groups did find a couple of nests so we were able to see a nest and relocate the eggs. We also learned that more females are born in hot sand, and boys are born in cold sand.
We all got to swim in the ocean today, and then went on the ferrie to Italy. In the morning we will be in Italy!
