On a narrow strip of beach in Trinidad, a mother sea turtle comes to shore to dig her nest and deposit her eggs. Right from the beginning, the odds are against the hatchlings.

The remaining baby sea turtles will scramble to the water as best they can - taking their first steps on a long and dangerous journey to maturity.
