A high-definition, live-streaming webcam, aimed directly at a sea turtle nest on a private Florida Keys beach, showed some incredible footage of the cutest baby sea turtles as they hatched from their eggs and started finding their way into the ocean!
Being able to see these adorable babies making their way into the place where they will spend almost the rest of their lives is just an amazing treat.
The camera is funded by the Keys tourism council, and serves as a reminder that we need to protect the five species of Florida-native sea turtles that are listed as either threatened or endangered.
Check out some more of the information at the Turtle Cam page, and watch the video to see the truly amazing turtle hatchling footage, captured by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
