Loggerhead Turtle
Making Its Nest

Selection of nesting site. Sea turtles nest well above the tideline. Otherwise, excessive dampness will cause the eggs to deteriorate and the embryos will die.

This loggerhead sea turtle is building its nest in the grass and the eggs should be quite safe from the tide.
