There were some newcomers this weekend in Ayuda Beach in Oaxaca, Mexico–about 3-and-a-half million of them.

Thousands upon thousands of Olive Ridley baby sea turtles hatched in just four days and raced to the shore.

Despite the bountiful bale of hatchlings, this particular species of turtles is endangered, wildlife experts say.
