As the world Isolated, I was saving turtles!

It’s five o’clock in the morning and most people are still asleep in this Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Being that it is summer, the sun rises earlier. The cool air sweeping in from the sea, makes mornings the best time to sleep. Thus, many people tend to sleep in more during summer mornings.

On this sleepy side of the Island, something beautiful happens every summer- it’s turtle hatching time. In 2020, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, as a norm, young people have gathered from different parts of the world to protect the newly hatched sea turtles as they make their way into the sea.
