Turtle camp at Mayto beach

Mayto beach is home to a well established camp dedicated to preserving and protecting nesting sea turtles. Student groups come from all over to witness turtles laying eggs and then gather them and place them in a protected pen for hatching. When the turtles hatch, they are released at dusk and make their way safely into the ocean. Everyone has a good time and learns a lot. These students are catching one of Mayto's beautiful sunsets.
