Sea Turtles Nesting in Costa Rica – 360 | National Geographic ctm magazine

Several times a year, thousands of sea turtles make their way to this beach in Ostional Wildlife Refuge to lay their eggs. Egg harvesting has been legalized in this area to generate income for the community and encourage conservation. Observe this mass-nesting, known as arribada in 360 video, and learn more about the egg harvesting.

  • National Geographic on May 23, 2019

    Harvesting sea turtle eggs is usually frowned upon, but for this community, it has been legalized and regulated. What are your thoughts on this system?

  • fbi cia on June 3, 2019


  • Winter on June 7, 2019

    Has anyone noticed that the video time is 4:20?

  • Sara Bartoli on July 16, 2019

    At 1;00 it looked blurred what was it blurred all it is is eggs

  • john a. on April 10, 2020

    Why don't the local people find another source of protein i.e. chicken? Why do they have to kill turtles? Shame on them and shame on NG for not video taping the locals eating turtle eggs!

  • Justin Coppa on July 4, 2020

    This video is excellent. John A, why not have the locals cut down the surrounding forests to create chicken farms? “Let them eat cake” right John? Oh, I’m sure this quote from Marie Antoinette and why you basically quoted her, flys over your head. Your ignorance of and lack of consideration for the people that live with these turtles at the places where they nest, causes you to criticize the very best means of protecting the turtles. They are harvesting a small fraction of the eggs for human consumption. In doing so a far greater percentage of hatchlings survive than would otherwise. This is exactly what the world needs more of. Upholding the dignity of local human populations and thinking of their needs also helps and is good for the turtles. John, your thinking is barely skin deep, and typical of band wagon environmentalists, who don’t care to study the particulars of a given environmental situation resulting in terrible solutions to important and complex environmental problems. This video is beautiful, thank you NG.

  • Amelia Paradise on September 20, 2020

    Me spinning in circles to see everything and getting dizzy The turtles are worth it.

    Seriously, though, this was really cool.
