This leatherback sea turtle had a very important mission, and she left the support and comfort of the sea to accomplish it.
As the sea turtle dug a shallow pit on the beach, a crowd formed around her, watching in amazement.
Everyone kept a safe distance as the turtle completed her motherly duties and laid her precious eggs in the moist sand. She then slowly made her way back to the sea.
It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience for these tourists.
