Visitors watch the release of Kemp's ridley sea turtle hatchlings into the ocean at the Padre Island National Seashore on Sunday. 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 frenzy state, the turtles are then released into the Gulf of Mexico.
