Turtle Rescue in Baja
Help preserve the Mexican species and help these small creatures get to the sea, where they will grow in freedom! Visit the associations dedicated to the protection of nests, eggs and offspring of the golfina turtle on the beaches of San José del Cabo. One of them is the Asociación Sudcaliforniana de Protección al Medio Ambiente y la Tortuga Marina, A.C. focused on environmental research and education of schools in the region and general public.
The exact date in which the release of turtles will take place is not yet defined but I recommend staying up to date on their social networks and website.
The history, culture and entertainment of Los Cabos awaits you. Whether you live here or are on vacation, make the most of these upcoming events!
