La Libertad, El Salvador, October 10, 2008--A recently hatched Olive Ridley sea turtle makes its way towards the Pacific Ocean on Toluca beach near San Salvador.

An environmental organization released about 1,500 of the captive-bred turtles. The species is listed as vulnerable by the IUCN primarily due to illegal capture, bycatch, and habitat loss.
