In this May 2, 2013 photo, a stray dog walks alongside a leatherback turtle preparing to bury her eggs in the sand at daybreak on a narrow strip of beach in Grande Riviere, Trinidad. When local conservation efforts started here in the early 1990s, locals say a maximum of 30 turtles emerged from the surf overnight during the peak of the six-month nesting season. Now, at Grande Riviere and in the eastern community of Matura, where another major leatherback colony has grown, locals say more than 700 of the critically endangered sea turtles appear overnight at the height of the nesting season.
