Turtle Rafaela lays eggs, again
In the early morning hours of Tuesday, 28 July 2015, a hawksbill turtle named Rafaela, deposited eggs for the second time this season on the beach of the “Fishermen” on the Santo Domingo Coast.
On 12 July, she deposited eggs for the first time, after six attempts, reported the Jaragua Group on their Facebook page. The group says this might be her first attempt, because of her small size. The hawksbill turtle was named Rafaela in honor of Rafael, a fisherman in the area (also known as “the tortoise”), who is known for his efforts to protect the turtles that visit the Malecon.
