Little turtles rescued

Thanks to Lacey from Blu Bar and her niece these hatchlings were safely returned to the sea in Santa Maria yesterday.  The little turtles were found wandering around in  Pedra da Lume.  The little girl was happy to see them go in the sea and will receive an adoption certificate to commemorate the occasion.
