  • The video doesn't make it clear enough that the eggs were being taken and sold by poachers. As a heads up to people watching this, the video takes place in Nicaragua where the protection of sea turtles isn't the highest priority. Thus the person/people in the video had to buy the eggs from the poacher to prevent the eggs being sold.

    • 1. If they hadn’t the poacher or other poachers would’ve stolen them 2. They don’t, they just sheltered them til they hatched 3. They weren’t there first, otherwise they wouldn’t have needed to buy the eggs from the poacher and if they hid the mother’s tracks it wouldn’t have stopped the poachers from trying to find her eggs and the family can’t guard the eggs 24/7 Smh

  • Even if there is a good reason to take them with you! To let them out in daytime - dangerous for a lot of reasons for them. Having them in the hands without gloves also a no go. Blending the mother with flash light for creating this video with the eggs - absolutely unnecessary will stress her and can even effect her too. Absolutely not good stuff to watch for every person that really wants to save sea turtles... please inform yourself better before creating those kind of content as a good example for helping turtles!

  • It comes from a privileged position when people have the time and money to engage in conservation. Often individuals with financial stressors beyond the middle and upper classes' comprehension turn to these activities in order to keep families alive. It is important to save these animals and also important to know that moral condemnation of poachers fails to account for all of the factors that have produced their circumstances.

  • OK, Look !!! I don't care what you freakin' tradition is !!! LEAVE THE DAMN TURTLE EGGS ALONE !!! If you want to help out, wait until they hatch on the beach (the way nature intended) and then help them into the water so the birds and raccoons, etc. will not kill them !!! Just leave the turtles and the turtle eggs alone !!

    John HinzmanJohn Hinzman24 dagar sedan
    • Watch the video and pay more attention. The tradition is to poach the eggs, which the person/people in the video circumvented by buying them from the poacher and allowing them to hatch somewhere safe as they would have been taken should they be left on the beach.

  • Perhaps with enough people speaking out to their government things will change. I know that here in Florida we can’t even turn lights on at night along the shore. That way the hatchlings only see the moon on the water and scurry down to the ocean instead of the hotels. The nests also have stakes around them so that people don’t accidentally step on the nests. I truly hope that someday all turtles will be protected.

  • From what I understand, if they hadn’t have bought them and picked them up the eggs most likely would’ve been scooped up by poachers for food or illegal pets. I wish the dodo video would’ve covered that a little more blatantly because I definitely spent the whole video thinking “don’t move them!”

  • I know these people were trying to do the right thing, but turtle sex is determined by their temperature why incubating so this is NOT a good way to raise them. It's better than letting them be eaten, but only barely. They did the best they could, but the better thing to do would be to use the internet fame from this to raise money to hire someone to guard the beach next season.

    • Pay more attention. A poacher was already planning to take and sell the eggs. The person/people in the video bought the eggs from the poacher to allow them to hatch safely. The video doesn't elaborate much on this sadly so you have to be paying enough attention to fully understand what happened.

      Benance SartBenance Sart18 timmar sedan
    • You’d rather have no turtles released to the sea at all? Sea Turtles are endangered enough as it is, they should have all the help they can get necessarily especially since their country has a glorified culture of poachers who sell their eggs. Even if they bought the eggs and decided to leave the eggs in the beach, poachers would still try to find them and steal them, they made best choice in the end.

  • Comments are split but there is two sides to the story here. Leave the turtle eggs where they were laid and let nature take it's course or give a helping hand and prevent poachers from taking them. I would have said let nature take it's course, but in today's world and undesirable humans, every chance these babies get can only be good.

  • Why not just put them close to the water so they can get right in? what's the point of putting them so far from the water???🤔

    Gabriel HeartGabriel Heart28 dagar sedan
    • Because...the just hatched babies NEED that first survival instinct to run to the water as quick as possible. Or they won't survive. The hatchlings, instinctively know that they are in extreme danger exposed, and that the water provides more protection. Because Seagulls and other predators wait for the eggs to hatch then snatch them before the reach the water. People will often watch the eggs till they hatch, and then protect them from birds, with umbrellas while they make that instinctive run to the water. But..if they were to pick the babies up and place them in the water right away, the turtles chances of survival is very very low. Because there is additional danger for turtles in the water, and when they crawl back out from time to time as they get older. They will not have the survival instinct to evade a predator later, if that FIRST survival run for the water instinct is taken away at birth. I learned this year's ago watching a nature show about turtles. Also I think you can just Google your question and you find that info.

    • When they leave to go home, different people can find the eggs before they hatch and just take them away. By the time they get back it'll be gone, or they have to pay again. If you mean when they put them on the sand and waited for the turtles to go, well, I don't really know either

  • Nowadays it's good to raise the turtles, to let them harden a bit before the wild. Because of humans there are far more obstacles. I just wish she took them to a little cove somewhere, not the beach. Apparently turtle egg hunting is huge down there. According to the people who do it, they leave enough for the population to be okay. But that's what everyone with an interest says everywhere. So at least she saved a few.

  • *So much wrong with this whole video!* She says, they "bought" the eggs? Isn't buying wild animals illegal? She says whoever sees the turtle first owns it. Who said one can own a wild animal by just seeing it? She says she is happy she got to save a "few". Why didn't she leave the eggs alone, as the turtle knew how best to burry the eggs for 100% survival rate. The eggs that were along the sides of the bucket probably died due to low temperatures in the night and high temps in the day! *IDIOTS!!!*

    • Because of the poacher. Like the woman said, "all my life this has been the culture". She hates it, but it's freaking Nicaragua, not Palm Beach. Do you get that? Poachers know when turtle egg season is. They prowl the beaches with a flashlight, and if they see a turtle, that's "their" turtle. Yes, it's bullshit. The man may have been armed, we don't know, but he is only poaching to make money. They offered money & he sold "his" eggs. She explained in the video if they had "just left them alone" or reburied them at the beach, another poacher would have taken them. Do you get THAT? "So much wrong with this whole video!" What's wrong with your comment about the video is your refusal to listen to what was said IN the video.
