If you are lucky enough to witness this DON'T touch them, don't move the sand for them like the man in the last video, and never pick them up like the one in this one.  You will throw off their basic instincts .....

The Kemp’s ridley turtle is the world’s most endangered sea turtle, and with a worldwide female nesting population roughly estimated at just 1,000 individuals, its survival truly hangs in the balance.

The fact the person is holding it means it's going to die. Turtles hatch at night so they can follow the moon. Gulls, other birds, fish, raccoons, and crabs all eat baby turtles as they try to reach the ocean. This turtle might not make it and has been left by its siblings. Only about twelve turtles survive if it's the first group the mother has laid, out of around one hundred eggs, if they're lucky.<<<< well that's depressing
