These are Olive Ridley turtles.
Incubation is 45 days.
Average of 97 babies per nest.
1 in 500 survive release.
After release they swim due west for 5 days to hit the northbound current (75kms offshore).
15 years later the survivors will come back and nest on the same beach.
This species has seen something like 80% decline in one generation and like all sea turtles, are a threatened species.
Tenemos suerte de estar pasando el verano en Sayulita Mexico.
