In front of our home today was a gorgeous large sea turtle. I ran down with my camera because I thought she was going to lay her eggs.
Upon approaching, however, she stunk. She was bleeding. And her eyes were very, very dead.
Heartbreak. Click on any photo to enlarge or view a slideshow.
Carlos, from PROFEPA, was there making sure no one touched her. He told me he was not officially authorized to move the turtle, and he was waiting for his boss to give him instruction. But, he said, the turtle I saw was the THIRD one found dead on the malecón this morning! Carlos assured me all three would be examined to determine the cause of death.
