In this photo provided by the Turtle Hospital, via the Florida Keys News Bureau, a hand reaches to collect an egg deposited by a critically ill female hawksbill sea turtle Monday, Sept. 3, 2012, at the Turtle Hospital in Marathon, Fla. The female reptile, laden with eggs, was discovered on a St. Croix, U.S.V.I., beach Aug. 24 just after Tropical Storm Isaac brushed the Virgin Islands, and flown to the Florida Keys-based hospital. Staff members there hope to save the turtle, hatch any fertile eggs and return the mother and babies to St. Croix. (AP Photo/Turtle Hospital via the Florida Keys News Bureau, Jim Weidman)
