2012 Sea Turtle Nesting Season Approaches

Mariano Suarez, CEA's Marine Turtle Protection Coordinator, reports in their latest newsletter that:

"Soon, sea turtles will be nesting on the beaches of Akumal. In the past two years, we have witnessed an increase in the number of females, nests and hatchlings, and we hope this year the trend continues to grow.

The final numbers of the 2011 nesting season were amazing, with a total of 40,000 hatchlings released of 407 nests present on Akumal."
