Drone Footage Captures Olive Ridley Swimming Away from its Nesting Beach

On February 18, 2016, we were lucky enough to see a daytime olive ridley turtle nesting on Las Baulas National Park. It is very rare to see a sea turtle nesting during the daytime and so we were very excited. We were also lucky enough to have an aerial drone with us at this time, giving us the unique opportunity to follow the turtle out to ocean after it finished nesting.
