Every sea turtle begins life in the same way. It hatches within its buried nest and forces its way to the surface. Once there, the struggle for survival begins. A sprint towards the water avoiding crabs, birds, dogs, and other predators depeding on the place of birth. The ones who will arrive to the water, they will dive beneth the waves and disappear into the "lost years". By the time they show up in coastal waters again, they've grown from palm sized infants into large animals whose shells are a couple of feet long. They must have been away for several years, but their movements are secrets withheld by the vastness of the ocean.
