First breaths of sea turtle babies and more art by ISPRA Raffaella Piermarini

First breaths of sea turtle babies

Sea turtles show natal homing instincts that bring them back to beaches where they were born to nest. The hatchling of Caretta caretta is an extraordinary sight that must be preserved. Researchers and volunteers from DEKAMER's turtle recovery center make sure day and night that nothing can disturb this unique event.
