In summer turtles are born on the shores of Crete and you'll be able to see their first steps.
How to see the birth of turtles Caretta-Caretta on Crete
In summer, from July to September, on the coast of Crete you can find dozens of clutches of eggs of rare turtles. They fenced with special signs and there is always staffed by student volunteers.

Turtles Caretta-Caretta were once a tasty delicacy, and when they began to dissapear, conservationists decided to take up their population and now serious look after each new brood.

Turtles get out of the pits in the sand at night or early in the morning - this time perfectly suited for them, because the hot sun could harm them. Turtles crawl to the water, at the same time touching them is strictly prohibited, as it is very important that they crawled to the water by themselves, otherwise they will not survive.

Specially trained people are watching for their birth, and you can stand there and take some photos. Little turtles, running to the water, are so cute, it's impossible not wreathed in smiles, watching them :)

The easiest way to find the holes with turtles on the shore of the city of Rethymno.
