About Release of Turtles
At Tecolutla beach you can be part of one of the most important projects in the area: the protection and conservation of leatherback, hawksbill and green turtles.
The turtles arrive to lay their eggs between the months of May to September and it is just at that time that the association takes the eggs to protect them from their natural predators.
During the months of June and July, the newly hatched turtles are returned to the sea. Up to 30,000 baby turtles are released each year and you can be part of this unique experience. You will be amazed to be part of something really important!
Seven of the eight species of sea turtles in the world spawn on Mexican beaches.
