My friend Dawn, my friend McDonald and I, Javier, visited Turtle Camp Los Quelonios in august 2018. I visited again the camp in December 2018. 

In august, Mr. Angel and biology student Aketzally took us to look for sea turtles. We found some olive ridley turtles laying their eggs. We collected their eggs and we planted them in the camp nursery. In December, Mr. Angel took me to look for turtles. We found some olive ridley turtles and some leatherback turtles (leatherback turtles are the biggest sea turtles). We also collected their eggs and we planted them in the camp nursery. When baby turtles are born, they are released immediately. They are never kept in captivity. They grow in their natural habitat.

Six of the seven sea turtles lay their eggs in Mexican beaches. Three of them lay their eggs in Playa Ventura. The work volunteers do to preserve sea turtles is of great importance and it is important to support them. You can support the camp by making a donation today.

Sea turtles are in danger of extinction. We must do anything we can to protect them. In Mexico is prohibited to kill sea turtles and eat their eggs, however in some places in Mexico people still kill turtles to eat them. People eat their eggs too. Also many turtles are captured accidentally every year in commercial fishing nets and they die.



Do you know that Sea turtles have been around since the time of dinosaurs? AMAZING! Sea turtles have inhabited planet earth for more than 100 million years. Only one in a thousand turtles reach adulthood. Mama turtles return to lay their eggs to the same beach where they were born. Papa turtles do not return to the beaches. Support the conservation of these ancestral animals. Sea turtles need our help. Make a donation right now.

World Sea Turtle Day is celebrated on June 16 every year. Everyone can do something for the protection and conservation of sea turtles. Please share this campaign on social media using the hashtags #LosQuelonios and #WorldSeaTurtleDay.

It was amazing to see these ancestral turtles lay their eggs. Let’s save these millenary animals from extinction. Your contribution will help volunteers to keep doing the work they have been doing for years.

I decided to start this campaign to raise money for Turtle Camp Los Quelonios because even though I do not live in Playa Ventura, we can all do something for sea turtles, no matter what city or country we live in. I invite you to support the camp by making a donation of $25, $50, $100 or more dollars now. Sea turtles and volunteers will be very grateful. Thank you!
