I wanted to capture the moment when turtle hatchlings emerge from their sandy underground chamber and instinctively head for the ocean. As little heads begin to pop up through the sand, it’s not long before they’re joined by about another hundred baby turtles, all making a mad dash for the sea. It’s believed that only one in a thousand will survive to adulthood.
