However, after a recent event killed thousands of hatchlings on the island of Trinidad, conservationists fear it could impact the species overall and put even greater odds against survival. Trinidad is home to one of the most popular beaches for leatherback sea turtles to lay their eggs, which made the event all the more concerning. Currently workers are attempting to divert a river on Trinidad, largely due to erosion of the surrounding area.
