A Night With Sea Turtle Hatchling Rescue in Fort Lauderdale
On it, you'll see activists attempting to guide some tiny sea turtle hatchlings in the right direction, i.e., toward the ocean. Unfortunately, the little dudes keep heading straight for the lights of Port Everglades, A1A -- or for the bright chandeliers of an empty ballroom at the Yankee Clipper.
At one point, the volunteer, trying to get the babies back in the sea, says, "You're going the wrong way, and you're two feet from the water!" Sadly, life seems to deal the baby turtles a harsh blow right from the beginning -- in clear violation of Fort Lauderdale's lighting ordinance.
If you can watch this without getting choked up, you might be slightly less than human.
