Nesting Sea Turtles

Baby loggerhead sea turtles emerge from a nest on the Florida Keys beach and are captured by an live streaming webcam, illuminated by infrared lighting on a Florida Keys beach Friday, July 25, 2014, near Big Pine Key, Fla. About 100 hatchlings crawled out of the nest and headed to the Atlantic Ocean. The webcam was a cooperative project between Save-a-Turtle and the Florida Keys tourism council  to  raise awareness of sea turtles and the need to protect them.  (Florida Keys News Bureau)
