Leatherback turtle nesting in daylight on Barbados’ East coast

Dear Barbados Free Press,

I spotted this leatherback turtle nesting along the east coast at the end of May. The sighting drew a large crowd of both locals and visitors. It is a very rare occurrence to see them nesting and even rarer to see them nesting during the day. I thought you might enjoy these pictures for your publication.
