Thousands of scaly, mini-flippered baby sea turtles took their first plunge into the ocean at a beach in Indonesia’s island of Bali on Friday (August 7) after they were released by volunteers and conservationists.

According to event organizers in the Bali Sea Turtles Conservation and the Bali Natural Resources and Conservation Center, around 10,000 baby sea turtles were released. The event was held to coincide with Indonesia’s national environment day and to raise awareness of environmental protection for the endangered animal, organizers said.
