The upper video shows Olive Ridley hatchlings after their release on their way to the ocean. They are released about 30 feet from the water's edge so that they can orient themselves. It is thought that this period of orientation is important for their return as nesting females in the future.
The lower video shows the Leatherback's trail up the beach to the site where she made the nest and her return to the sea. The site where Dr. Lopez draws a circle is where the nest is located. The female camouflages the nest prior to heading back to the sea.
