Peru releases 500,000 baby turtles ... and it's adorable!

Peru is releasing 500,000 baby turtles as part of a massive conservation effort.

The yellow-spotted Amazon River turtles, also known as Taricaya, are considered a vulnerable species.

The turtle eggs were collected by teams of volunteers and incubated. Once hatched, they were gathered up and set free in northeastern Peru's Amazon River Basin.

If the turtles survive the danger of the Amazon, they could live for up to 70 years.
