Turtle Egg Laying Time

2016-01-30 16.01.52

Sal Salis is currently closed for the season  so our Camp Managers Paul and Candice are finding time to enjoy themselves.  They had been out for an early morning paddle on the kayaks yesterday when they noticed turtle  tracks across the damp sand.  Following them they found this gorgeous girl who had just finished laying her eggs and was busy covering her nest.   She was exhausted and went at a VERY slow pace, eventually she trundled back down to the water and swam off.   Candice says the beach is covered in nests at the moment.

Three of the world’s seven marine turtle species nest on the mainland beaches and islands of Ningaloo Reef during the summer months.

  1. Green turtles (Chelonia mydas)
  2. Loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta)
  3. Hawksbill turtles (Eretmochelys imbricata)

Incubation is then around 60 days so through March and into April turtle hatchings on the beach are a very special experience for some of our lucky guests.   It is hard to describe how emotional you feel watching the tiny turtles – perfect and beautiful, strive for life.

  1. 無実の罪で極刑が決まった兄リンカーン・バローズを逃がすために、弟スコフィールドが自ら刑務所に入り、仲間たちと力を合わせて脱獄をする話です。ところが、脱獄した後の話がまた最高で、常にハラハラさせられるので長い時間観ていても飽きませんよ。

  2. Mai, ce sa zic, e posibil sa ai dreptate. Dar ma intreb, daca s-ar declansa conflictul, nu cumva ne vom trezi cu Basescu pe tancuri, strigand ca el apara poporul ?Apoi zici de cinci ani cu Geoana. Dupa parerea mea, in momentul de fata Geoana e mai legat de maini, ca oricand, pentru ca are opozita puternica din parlament din partea celorlalte partide, in special PDL.Gandeste in felul urmator: Basescu + opozita PSD+PNL, sau Geoana + opozitia PDL+PNL. In ambele e exclus ca presedintele sa faca ce vrea, in afara de ce face Basescu acum, adica cearta.
