Turtles on a Comeback for ’08

As usual in the beginning of the month, I got the monthly statistics from the team at the Turtle Sanctuary, La Tortuga Feliz, in Playa Viva, Juluchuca, Mexico.  As of this month, the sanctuary is running 40% above the number of turtles released same time last year. While this large increase probably won’t be sustained as we head into the high season over the last 4 months of the year, it is still a good indication that the work of the all volunteer staff is effective.  With over 200,000 turtles released last year, this bodes well for a large number of turtles to be released in ’08.  We hope you can join us for this truly transformation experience when Playa Viva opens in early ’09.  Below is a photo of a baby leatherback turtle taken during one of our visits back in March.

  1. Wow – great subtitle might be “Turtles take flight”! Tell me this little guy is not ready to take on the world.
