Natural Habitat Adventures is offering you the chance to make a positive impact by helping to protect Olive Ridley sea turtles on Mexico’s Pacific Coast. Each year, the turtles come ashore to lay their eggs in the sand. At night, the baby hatchlings hasten to the sea. Due to such threats as hunting and coastal development, numbers of Olive Ridley sea turtles have been dramatically reduced.
Fortunately, community-based conservation efforts are helping this species make a vital comeback, and ecotourism income has been offering sustainable alternatives to poaching and fishing. Join in the effort by visiting “turtle camps” to learn about conservation work, and assist in patrolling the beach and helping hatchlings reach the sea through the Mexican Sea Turtles adventure. Explore the incredible coast, relax in seaside towns and stay at an eco-lodge set on the cliffs above the Pacific Ocean. Help make a difference and have an amazing time doing it.
