CancunTurtles has been published and maintained since 2015 to assist with the enormous efforts by the volunteers working with sea turtles in Cancun, Mexico.
To protect sea turtles and their habitats as well as educate the public, several conservation programs worldwide try to stop the further decline in sea turtle populations. In Cancun the Department of Ecology of the Municipality of Benito Juarez, to which the beaches in and around Cancun belong, launched years ago the “Sea Turtle Protection and Management Program” (“Programa de Protección y Manejo de Tortugas Marinas) – as the budget is tight and the manpower to watch over around 45 km (30 mile) beach is scarce, beachfront hotels and businesses in the area play a vital role in the sea turtle guardian program.
The volunteers taking part every year face a very challenging task and need all help they can get. As part of our social commitment, we are proud to help wherever we can!
