A teary-eyed leatherback sea turtle lays her eggs on Trinidad's North coast.

These amazing animals can grow to 8 feet (2.5 m) in length and weigh nearly 2,000 pounds (900 kg). The same turtles that nest in Trinidad swim all the way to Nova Scotia to feed on jellyfish.

Although leatherbacks have been around since dinosaurs walked the Earth, they are now threatened with extinction due to human actions. In particular, populations in the Pacific have declined by 90% in just 20 years.
