Sea Turtle Hatchlings And Night Patrols-->> - Sea Turtle Hatchling releases will begin this month! The best place to participate in a release during September and October is ASUPMATOMA's Turtle Camp about 30 minutes south of Pescadero. They also offer camp outs where you can go on patrol with biologists for just $100 pesos per person. The species you are likely to see nesting is Olive Ridley, but no guarantee can be made. Contact Karla at (624) 122-0777. www.asupmatoma.org

Beginning in October when Leatherbacks arrive to nest in Todos Santos, Tortugueros Las Playitas will operate the Incubation Greenhouse in Las Tunas. Olive Ridley, Black, and Leatherback nests are relocated to the Greenhouse to maximize the hatch rate during cold months. Hatchling Releases in Las Tunas will begin on November 15, and last through April or May. School group and Family Camp outs to observe nesting turtles and relocate nests to the Greenhouse can be arranged from October - April. Adopt-A-Nest to help support our Nest protection program, and "Like" us on Facebook to receive notices and other information in your newsfeed.

We look forward to seeing you this season, and maintain our promise to continue our efforts to protect, conserve and replenish the fragile Marine Eco-systems of Baja California. - Tortugueros Las Playitas , tortugueroslasplayitas [- at -] gmail.com, www.todostortugueros.org, 145-0353, Todos Santos
