There is also good news in times of the corona crisis: According to reports by the British "Guardian" in Brazil, almost 100 hawksbill sea turtles hatched on a deserted beach. Accordingly, the 97 copies saw the light of day last Sunday in Paulista, a city in the northeastern state of Pernambuco. Because of the exit restrictions, their first steps went almost unnoticed.

These are particularly dangerous under normal circumstances. Because the mother animal lays her eggs on the beach, the babies have to walk unprotected after hatching. They are often overlooked by inattentive beach visitors and accidentally killed. Government officials recorded cameras as the tiny animals made their way into the Atlantic. According to media reports, the town hall later confirmed the birth of the young animals.

Câmara told the "Guardian" that the measures are crucial to prevent conditions like those in Europe. In Pernambuco, five people have died as a result of Covid-19. The country's president, Jair Bolsonaro, had long termed the novel virus "little flu" . Most recently, however, he had spoken of the "greatest challenge of our generation".

According to an environmental organization in the country , which works to protect turtles, the Hawksbill sea turtles are among the endangered species. The animals grow up to 110 centimeters long and weigh up to 85 kilograms. The animals lay their eggs in January, according to Paulista's Environment Minister, Roberto Couto. The baby turtles hatch in April or May.
