Saving the Sea Turtles

Today we came back to San José after finishing our turtle unit. We were at the turtle reserve for three days and we learned a lot about turtles. On Saturday night, we saw a leatherback turtle laying eggs. She was ENORMOUS!! The day before, we saw baby turtles crawl into the ocean. I can’t believe that we got to see that.

The rainforest was a fun place. Luckily we didn’t see any snakes and we didn’t see too many spiders. I am so excited for going to the building project tomorrow.
