Sea Turtle Camp & crocodiles Adventure

 

 

 

 

This is a magical adventure, for big and little kids alike. The Bay of Banderas is home every year to thousands of Olive Ridley Turtles that were born here, and return to lay their eggs.  The survival rate, due to natural predators, including humans, is very low. On Flamingos Beach in Nuevo Vallarta, there is a turtle farm, dedicated to the harvesting, hatching, and releasing of the baby sea turtles.

 

 

 

 

We begin with a lecture and video on these marvelous sea turtles, and then we patrol and search the beach for hidden eggs.  Tracks in the sand left by the nesting mothers the night before leave us unmistakable clues to follow.  We are then ready to release the hatchlings that have been being cared for in the nursery.
