Heron Island, Australia; Feb 8 - 10, 2005  
turtle mamas & hatchlings (2:34 minutes)  
Think turtles are boring? Think again! We were lucky enough to visit Heron Island during the time when the last of the adult female Green Turtles were coming up on the beach to lay their eggs and the first of the hatchlings were making their mad dash for the ocean. (For more info, see australia: yertle the turtle.)

Looks like you guys had fun making that one. I didn't know you two were secretly documentary filmmakers. Loved it.
