Incubation Greenhouse

Science Based Conservation:

Critically endangered Leatherback hatchlings (above) were incubated in our Sea Turtle Incubation Greenhouse.  The greenhouse was designed by Marine Biologist Elizabeth Gonzalez who investigated Leatherback incubation success in Baja California Sur.

 

The greenhouse was found to incubate high quality hatchlings during winter months when incubation usually fails.   The hatchlings were evaluated based on length, weight, vigor, stress levels, and gender, and were found ro be equivalent to hatchling that incubated in naturally warer climates further south in Mexico.
