Tiny turtle: David Dunn shared this photo of a one-day-old loggerhead sea turtle he helped protect at Honeymoon Island State Park.

Dunn is a volunteer at Honeymoon Island and discovered the turtle one day recently with a park ranger. "We escorted the babies to the water so the birds would not eat them. After 30 years, they will be back as adults and weigh in at over 300 pounds," he wrote.
