Sea Turtle Graveyard


Bahia Magadlena, Baja Sur - Upsetting news from photographer Sam Bekish. While traveling with a local boat captain along the coastal islands of Magdalena Bay on Baja's Pacific, he came across hundreds of skeletons of sea turtles laid in rows by unknown visitors to the island. The image (courtesy of Sam Bekish) says it all. Seems the fishing boats net everything and hundreds of dead turtles wash ashore during the season. Disgusting!
