Biologist Dr. Donna Shaver invests her entire being into the conservation and protection of endangered sea turtles on the coast of Texas. Here, I looked up to see her bidding farewell to one of the last hatchlings of the season. An emotional affair, these tiny turtles, about the size of an oreo cookie, have a mighty journey ahead.

Location: North Padre Island National Seashore, Texas, United States
