Disturbing Turtle Graveyard at Magdalena Bay - Sam Bekish's trip to visit the Pacific side of Baja's Isla Magdalena produced an eerie discovery of an estimated 1,000 sea turtle skeletons left on the beach at this spot. During Bekish's walk of approximately 2 kilometers along the beach, he found 2 or 3 other locations with turtle remains arranged in similar fashion.

Bekish made the trip to the island with Capt. Ruben of Puerto Lopez Mateos on May 28, 2009. Said Bill Erhardt of the discovery, "They rode ATVs south on the east side of the island to Devil's Bend. They walked west across the island to the Pacific at what Ruben thought was about the narrowest point. Sam thinks they were about 10 kilometers south of Puerto Lopez Mateos at that point. Sea turtles are among the most common by-catch in the nets of commercial fishermen who ply the fertile waters off the Baja Pacific coast.

When seiners are working along the coast, bloated corpses dot the seascape and pile up by the thousands along the shoreline of the peninsula and the barrier islands. On Isla Magdalena, anonymous visitors have arranged the tortuga corpses into graveyards in a silent memorial to the victims of this tragic carnage. - Albert Geurin, BajaAlbert [-at-] gmail.com, 145-1044, Todos Santos
