Biologist Rafael Chacon,  the Municipal Director of the Ecology,  reports over 2000 turtle nests have been identified.  Nests are spread throughout Punta Sur to Mezcalitos.  That’s a whopping 1700 MORE than this time last year!   Anyone can volunteer on Saturdays (starting at at 8am)  for beach clean-up.  It’s a great way to make sure our turtles have a clean place to nest.  All you have to do is show up at the Municipal Department of Ecology, on Av. 65.

To volunteer for the evening nesting program advanced reservations are required!. A contribution, which goes directly to the turtle program, of $55usd for adults and $30usd for children up to 13 years of age is requested. Children under the age of 5 are free. Please contact the Department of Ecology at 872 5795 to reserve spaces or ask about a group rate.
