More than twice the usual number of endangered baby sea turtles hatched on a Mexico beach after COVID-19 limited interference from humans

Over 2,250 Olive Ridley sea turtles were released in El Desemboque, Mexico
Typically, less than 1,000 hatch and make the journey successfully
Every year, thousands of females come ashore to lay eggs in the same spot
Ocean pollution, vessel strikes, hunting and entanglement put the turtle at risk for extinction
