Tortugueros Las Playitas A.C.'s mission is to protect, conserve and replenish the fragile marine eco-systems of Baja California Sur, Mexico. In addition to their sea turtle population recovery program, they place special interest on habitat protection, environmental education and community outreach in Todos Santos, Las Playitas and Agua Blanca. One of their goals is help restore the critically endangered pacific leatherback population which is on the verge of extinction. Their incubation greenhouse stabilizes sand temperatures creating an ideal nest habitat, where hatch rates are maximized and gender ratios are balanced. They invite you to join them as a volunteer, event participant or sponsor and help balance the fragile marine ecosystems of Baja.
