Visitors watch the release of Kemp's ridley sea turtle hatchlings into the ocean at the Malaquite Beach Visitor Center at Padre Island National Seashore on Sunday, July 27, 2014. Sea turtle eggs are collected from their nests along the Texas coast and allowed to incubate at the Padre Island National Seashore incubation facility. Once they have reached a "frenzied" state the turtles are then released into the Gulf of Mexico.
