Caption: Green turtle nesting beach on Sangalaki Island, in Kalimantan, Indonesia. Green turtles (Chelonia mydas) lay their eggs on this island throughout the year. Most of the nests are found in green vegetation on the edge of the beach. Turtles prefer remote beaches to nest as there are fewer predators such as rats.
