Forget Turkey Day — for Prince Harry, it’s about Turtle Day!

On Wednesday, the prince, who is currently on his royal tour of the Caribbean, stopped by Lovers Beach on the island of Nevis to release nested turtles out into the wild — and let’s just say the pictures might be the best thing you see all day.

Harry was also joined by other volunteers helping out on the beach.

The activity was part of the Nevis Turtle Group’s Sea Turtle Conservation Program, an initiative dedicated to saving the animals and involving the local community to ensure that sea turtles are protected for years to come.

Later that evening, Harry, 32, took part in an investiture ceremony on the island of St. Kitts in which he presented Sir Edmund Lawrence, former Governor-General of St. Kitts and Nevis, with his GCMG, a British order of chivalry. He later met with guests at a reception held at Government House.

Harry’s Caribbean tour, which kicked off Sunday in Antigua, marks the 35th Anniversary of Independence in Antigua and Barbudo, and the 50th Anniversary of Independence in Barbados and Guyana.

The trip includes a visit to seven countries: Antigua and Barbuda, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, and Barbados and Guyana.

This trip marks the prince’s second official visit to the Caribbean, the first having occurred in 2012.

On Thursday, Harry — who is spending the holiday apart from his girlfriend Meghan Markle — arrived in St. Lucia, his next stop.
