Bolivia Releases 100,000 Baby Turtles into a River

(Video Link)

Last December, Bolivia's government released approximately 100,000 baby turtles (auto-start video) belonging to several endangered species into the Guaporé River, which is a tributary of the Amazon. One of those species can grow up to 3.2 feet wide and live for a century. There were so many turtles that they had to be scooped into the water.
