Israel's Sea Turtle Rescue Center

Here's a bit of positive news about Israel you won't find on your local news stations (outside of Israel), on the efforts of Israeli Biologist/Zoologists and environmentalists in attempting to save and bolster sea turtle populations in the Mediterranean Sea.

It's Sea Turtle nesting season here in Israel, where every morning staff and volunteers from the rescue center scout the beaches for newly laid eggs from the previous night to collect them into protected nesting areas.

Here's a clip about the wonderful work this center does in English:

I saw a video in youtube about sea turtles laying eggs in HaBonim Beach but I currently cant find it.
It was a part of a story from the news (last year i think).
