Hawksbill Turtle Release.

Today we had an incredible day at the beach.
The weather was perfect, a lot of wind, not humid and about 34 degrees Celsius.

We were invited to witness the release of rescued turtles,
these turtles were found by people on the shores of Dubai.
Some were covered with barnacles and couldn't swim anymore, so the center gets them cleaned, treated and nursed back to health. 

 Today they were released back to the sea and children were encourraged to help so they can understand
the importance of preserving the wildlife and environment.

 There was a big crowd to see the turtles make their way to the sea.
This area is protected by  E.M.E.G. so usually only the people that work there can enter.

Nad is in her element working here.
