Padre Island National Seashore Postcard - Hatchling 2
This postcard captures a Kemp's ridley sea turtle hatchling crawling toward the ocean. During the summer at Padre Island National Seashore, Kemp's ridley sea turtle hatchlings are released from nests that were laid in the park and along parts of the Texas coast. Time spent crawling toward the surf imprints, or programs, elements of the beach in the hatchlings, enabling females to return to the same spot after being thousands of miles away. Commemorate your travels to Padre Island National Seashore, which consists of 66 miles of coastline, dunes, prairies, wind tidal flats, and 380 species of bird, with this postcard.
