Sea Turtles 'Go, Go, Go': Harry releases turtles on Caribbean beach

'Go, Go, Go': Harry releases turtles on Caribbean beach
Volunteers monitoring nests near Lovers Beach on Nevis had found the green sea turtle hatchlings in undergrowth.
The prince, who is on a tour of seven Caribbean island nations as the Queen's representative, was handed the creatures one by one.
He later helped excavate a nest which the babies had left.

Willing the turtles to "Go, go, go... that way", the prince observed that one was "waiting for the water to come to him", adding: "That's really clever".
The volunteers from the Nevis Turtle Group work every night on the beaches, tagging turtles and collecting information about their nesting habits and movements.
