A baby turtle’s hesitant crawl from the nest to the sea was caught on camera on Sunday, January 1, at the Ningaloo Reef near Exmouth, Western Australia.

A turtle tracker monitoring the species spotted the little one struggling up a sand dune before making a smoother descent towards the ocean. The reef’s beaches and islands <a href="" target="_blank">are home to three of the world’s seven marine turtle species</a> between November and March.
