Third Batch of Olive Ridley Sea Turtle Hatchlings Released at Camayan Beach

Following two successful releases of Olive Ridley Sea Turtle hatchlings last December and earlier this month, another batch of hatchlings were ushered to sea last Friday, January 20, 2017.


At 5:30pm, Camayan Beach Resort’s shore was again filled with excited onlookers and staff as 69 Olive Ridleys started their ocean journey. In time, these same hatchlings will revisit their nesting grounds to lay the eggs of the next generation of Sea Turtles.


The next batch of Olive Ridleys is set to be released this afternoon at Camayan Beach Resort. As of this time, seven more nests are being monitored by Ocean Adventure Aquarists and Camayan Beach Resort’s Lifeguards. Watch out for more news and announcements on hatchlings releases and grab the chance to be part of this special encounter with these fascinating sea creatures.
