Parents in Grenada + Leatherback Sea Turtles Video

As promised, here is the video I put together of my parents' visit to Grenada. If nothing else, definitely watch the first half so you can see a huge leatherback sea turtle lay and burry her eggs. They go into a sort of trance during this process and so you can only use red light to see them because red light doesn't bother them in their trance. We got to touch our turtle, and our good friends Kayla and Evan were volunteering that night so they got to be the ones to catch the eggs and record all sorts of numbers and measurements for research. Turtles are so rad! And these ones are the raddest because instead of a shell, they have rough, leathery backs. They're like legit sea dinosaurs.
