Under the pale light the moon shines onto the beaches, turtle nesting season is such an awe-inspiring scene to watch. As the sea turtles wade their way up to the beach to dig holes in the sand and lay their eggs to then disappear back into the deep blue.
Up and down the beautiful Atlantic Coast, you can witness this amazing spectacle yourself as many environmental groups and parks organize the summer nighttime…
