It's Friday afternoon and we know what you need: Baby turtles! Lots of em!
I spent yesterday morning at The Wetlands Institute in Stone Harbor, watching juvenile diamondback terrapins be released into the coastal marshes near 7 Mile Island.
When nesting female turtles get crushed on the road, good samaritans bring them in, and the Institute harvests the eggs, incubates them and then raises they babies until they're ready to brave the wild.
Billy Brown will have a full report in next month's Grid, but for now, enjoy these adorable shots. For more on the Terrapin Conservation Project, click here.
