Hurricane Irene's Smallest Victims
Many baby sea turtle nests were unearthed, destroyed and / or relocated by Hurricane Irene. I learned from this article that my first instinct in this situation is not correct. Though I may want to "rescue" the tiny turtle and take it to a conservation group, they are actually more likely to survive if I leave them on the beach to fight with nature. So, its probably a good thing I live on the west coast. I'm not sure I could just sit there and watch the hatchlings get battered by the storm.
