Turtle Release - VillaSanta

Turtle Release

Pitch in a helping hand to protect and release newly-hatched turtles into the ocean. Due to environmental and human population factors, these turtles now lay their eggs on the beaches of Todos Santos where the sand temperatures are too low for the eggs to hatch naturally. The wonderful people involved with the conservation group, Tortugueros Las Playitas, dedicate themselves to incubating the eggs, running nightly patrols to gather and protect the eggs, and educating all on sea turtle restoration. The perfect evening activity that is also great for kids! Please check with the Front Desk before you go to confirm the release schedule and for directions.

Located a few miles south of Villa Santa Cruz at the end of Camino Internacional.

Donations to the volunteer group are greatly appreciated. Check out more details on their Facebook page: Tortugueros Las Playitas A.C.
