Leatherback Turtle
Enters the Sea

Quite often the same female leatherback sea turtle will return to the same place or nearby sections of a beach to nest again later the same season.

Green, loggerhead and hawksbill sea turtles tend to re-nest every 12 to 15 days while leatherback sea turtles wait only nine or 10 days.
