Turtle in the Sea

Late at night in the beam of a lighthouse, a turtle mother lays her eggs. She will cover them with sand and return to the sea. She cannot stay to see them hatch. That is the turtle way.

There are marks on her shell that tell of her near misses with sharks and boats, storms and nets - all the things she must batte in order to stay alive. If she stays alive, she can lay her eggs. The best thing a sea turtle mother can do for her offspring is survive.

Jim Arnosky has written a poignant account of one turtle's successful battles, and in doing so, has created both an accurate picture of sea life and a subtle story about how important it is for mothers to take care of themselves for their children.
