 Endangered Species Conservation

October through March each year we relocate endangered nests to our protective greenhouse, where temperatures are optimized creating healthier hatchlings and balanced gender ratios.

Scientific Research
 
We are currently analyzing DNA from our Leatherback Hatchlings from February 2019. This research in collaboration with the UABCS Department of Environmental Ecology is the first of it's kind. Results will give us origin and health data for this critically endangered species. You can help us collect more nests and samples with a donation below:

Spread the Word

Olive Ridleys begin nesting in July, Blacks in August, and Leatherbacks nest October - April. Please help these endangered species by following the following guidelines:

  • Reduce outdoor lighting in coastal homes
  • Reuse & Recycle your Plactics
  • Don't build bonfires on the beach
  • Participate in Beach Clean-ups
  • Never shine light on nesting turtles
  • Support the local economy to eliminate the need for poaching (shop Pinos not Costco)
  • Never drive on the beach
  • Volunteer for conservation groups
  • Make sure your construction debris is disposed of properly, not thrown in the arroyo.
  • Never eat or buy turtle meat or eggs
  • Promote sustainable fishing by consuming line-caught fish (nets kill turtles)
  • Spread the word

    Please report any turtle nests or tracks in the Todos Santos area to 
    tortugueroslasplayitas@gmail.com or 612.177.8393
