Make sure to make time for this. To see the release and learn about the Sea Turtles journey will bring tears to your eyes. It happen during the most amazing sun sets
A fantastic project. It is a fun way to enjoy an evening by the ocean while learning about how important our help has become to the survival of these special animals. It was made all the better by a wonderful sunset at the end of it all.
We kept seeing fenced in areas at a couple of beaches in the Todos Santos area and wondered what was going on. We also saw people coming and going from them on their dune buggies with ice chests and finally found out that they are taking care of the turtle eggs to return them when they hatch.

We learned about the turtle conservation program, watched a beautiful sunset together, and then released our babies into the sea. Educational and fun!
