The “arribadas” in general take place once a month the week before new moon for three to six days and within thirty minutes each turtle dig their nest and lays 80-100 white eggs which are the exact size. But the small turtles and even the eggs do have a lot of natural predators, for example eagles, ownerless dogs and the more in the sea. Only a very small number survives and because of that protecting them is very important.
So all in all you never know for sure how many turtles will arrive during an “arribada” period, but if you really want to join this natural phenomenon you need a little bit of time, patience and luck.
