This news is about turtles. Thousands of them arrive on a beach. They nest and lay their eggs. The beach is in Costa Rica.

People come to the beach. They watch the turtles. Some people block the way of some turtles. These turtles turn around. They don’t lay eggs.

Some tourists even touch the turtles. They sit on their nests. They put children on the turtles.

Difficult words: arrive (to come), nest (to make a nest – a space in the ground for eggs), lay (to put down).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
