16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Turtles Swimming

This photo was taken during our family vacation to the Riviera Maya at the Xcaret Park. For over two decades Xcaret has monitored, investigated and preserved sea turtle populations on the nesting beaches of the Central Coast of Quintana Roo. One day these beautiful sea turtles will be released into the wild.
