Nauts Earn Sea Turtle Specialty Certification

Nauts Earn Sea Turtle Specialty Certification

Just like divers, the turtles who need this procedure start with a lot of weight and then get less and less to only have what they need. We also got to see a bunch of four-day old turtles and learned that only one in ten thousand actually survive to reproductive age.
