Many turtles on a beach - level 2
During November and December, millions of baby turtles are born on one Pacific beach in Mexico.
It is estimated that 3-5 million young turtles were born in only three to four days. That is approximately 30-50% little turtles who had to walk to the ocean for the first time. There are 120 beaches in Mexico that female turtles lay their eggs at. Each female can lay around 100 eggs.
The Mexican government implemented ecological plans to protect the sea turtles 20 years ago. The number of turtles has increased, but they are still endangered.
Difficult words: be estimated (be guessed), approximately (around), implement (put into effect).
