Observe egg laying Green Sea-turtles

​These one meter long gentle giants feed in the shallow waters off the Brazilian coast, where they graze the sea-grass fields. Each year several thousand find their way to Ascension Island to lay their eggs in the sandy beaches. We may witness egg-laying sea turtles coming ashore at night. This natural phenomenon is a unique opportunity for nature photographers.
