Rescuing the sea #turtle eggs that are being exposed from the #storm surge of Hurricane Patricia @playaviva, burying them again in the sand further in from the waves. #playaviva takes their ecological responsibility seriously. #photoshoot #mexico #officedaytoday (at Playa Viva)

It’s easy to see how the Endangered Four-eyed Turtle (Sacalia quadriocellata) gets its name. This unique species is in decline due to the use of its shell in traditional Chinese medicine. The Turtle Conservancy works to mitigate the trade in species like this, along with our captive breeding efforts.

Its pretty clear.. though I might have called you 6 eyed sally!
