Every day at sunset in San Pancho, volunteers release baby turtles into the ocean. Volunteers patrol the beach at night and collect the eggs to protect them from local predators. These little guys had recently hatched and were in their basket, ready to be taken to the beach. They were scrambling around so much, it was tricky to find a focus.
In 16 years, the local turtle population has increased from 72 to 661 nesting females. Find out about volunteering with the turtles in San Pancho at Project Tortuga.
