Baby Turtle Release in Mexico is Seasonal
To start, you will need to make sure you’re traveling during the right season. There are a few months in which you can participate in the baby turtle release in Mexico. These differ from one region to the next. Therefore, you will have a different season in Cancun than you will in Puerto Vallarta, for example.
Therefore, you can either choose your location based on the season you want to travel or you can choose the season you’ll be traveling based on the location where you’d like to travel.
What Happens during a Baby Turtle Release in Mexico?
Mexico is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. While one of the greatest things to see while you’re there is the sea turtles, these animals are currently struggling. They are an endangered species.
They rely on Nayarit’s biologists and volunteers to protect them against people, predators and the elements. This protection spans from their time in the egg all the way to their journey to the ocean. If you’re looking for a truly memorable vacation, taking part in that process can certainly do the trick.
Where to Participate in a Baby Turtle Release During Your Stay in Mexico
Puerto Vallarta, Nayarit, Mexico currently has a huge turtle protection and release program. In fact, it has the largest program within that state. Interestingly, it was both developed and is funded by donations from local condo owners.
If you will be staying at Villa Estrella, you’re only a couple of hours away from this experience. If you decide you’re interested, head to the gate house and affordable transportation will be arranged for you to be a part of the baby sea turtle release.
Near Puerto Vallarta villas, biologists make a daily beach patrol throughout the beginning and end of the season. They do several patrols during the summer months when there are the most eggs. They collect the eggs from where they are buried in the sand. From there, they are buried in a more protected area. Once the babies hatch, they are very vulnerable for the first three days. During that time, volunteers take part in the baby turtle release in Mexico to help them safely travel to the sea.
