Babies at last!
The first baby was born today - from Nest 1 in the hatchery. This nest was found by Betania and Hattie on Algodoeiro beach and the whole team were present when in became the first nest moved by SOS Tartarugas into the hatchery. The incubation time was 64 days and 89 babies were born from 104 eggs. A pretty good 86% success rate. Have a feeling a lot more will be hatching over the next few days.
