Tortugueros Las Playitas A.C.

Program Reports

About our Science Based Conservation Program
 
Sea Turtle nests require a minimum of 26 degrees celcius for successful incubation.  You can see from the graphs below, each year in November /December the temperature drops far below 26. The Incubation Greenhouse raises the Sand Temperature allowing nests to incubate successfully.  Each year we incubate approximately 10,000 endangered eggs in the greenhouse.
