Summary


Save, learn, help, protect, enjoy and contribute


Description


Save, learn, help, protect, enjoy and contribute. This tour is for anyone who wants to leave Cozumel a little better than how they found it. You will be led by the biologist's team member who spearheads the Save the endangered Sea Turtle Program. This is a hands on tour that you will actually save the sea turtles. The save a Sea Turtle program has been one of Cozumel's best kept secrets by having local volunteers and a groundbreaking new conservation system which has now been adopted by many other state wide programs for several years, Cozumel now boasts the most Sea Turtle nests per kilometer than any other area in Mexico by a 3 to 1 ratio. This increased volume of fertile ground has as much to do with the island's history as it does with the Save a Turtle Program that had only been open to the local public but now is being open to a select few visitors so they too can witness this marvel of nature. There are several aspects to turtle protection & conservation; the portion that we will be permitted due to the hour of the day that your ship is in port is the “save a turtle” portion. Every evening the turtles hatch and make their way to the sea. This is a natural process, but in the frenzy of the nest only about 80% of the hatched turtles actually have the stamina and jolt of energy to climb out. On this tour we backtrack the previous evenings events and help rescue the 20% of turtles who were not ready for the dash to the sea and recover these turtles until their inner-organs are mature enough to be released by digging them out. This process is extremely heartwarming and satisfactory as you will be indirect contact with nature and you will be directly involved in saving the little life of the turtle so it may have a true chance at life. Never have foreigners been able to witness participate in this truly remarkable event, until now. NOTES This tour is seasonal (Available only from end of July - until early November) Minimum age is 8. Pregnant women and guests with heart or respiratory problems are not permitted on this excursion
