Human Wall Helps Baby Turtles Reach the Sea

People look as babies sea turtles head to the sea, on October 3, 2016 in Saint-Aygulf beach, near Cannes southern France. As a rare phenomenon, a specimen of "Caretta carettta" or loggerhead sea turtle laid her eggs on Saint-Aygulf beach in July and the eggs are carefully watched since then. / AFP / Yann COATSALIOU (Photo credit should read YANN COATSALIOU/AFP via Getty Images)

When you’re a tiny Loggerhead turtle hatchling, a lot of dangers wait for you: predators, confusing lights from a nearby airport and even your own strength can stand in the way of reaching the promised ocean. That’s why volunteers from the Bonair island in the Caribbeans came to the rescue.

On the day of hatching, a human wall of volunteers was formed to help baby turtles reach the sea. In return they got to witness nature’s true miracle, which might also be a very rare one, as the Loggerhead sea turtle is considered an endangered species.

As one of the commentators on Reddit said, “Cutest. Stampede. Ever.”
