Turtles and Tourists on Cousin Island

 A lucky group of tourists witnessed as a turtle was laying her eggs - taking photos from a safe distance by Emma Jones

Every year on Cousin Island we roll into another turtle season in August and we quickly find ourselves deeper and deeper in the sand as the days turn the corner to November – the height of the Hawksbill turtle season. From dawn till dusk starting in October, we keep our eyes peeled for turtle tracks to or from the beach and turtles approaching the beach or heading back to sea.
