Turtle Sanctuary – Volunteer Opportunities

TurtleStatsGraphJune2009Playa Viva is working jointly with WildCoast/CostaSalvaje on a summer turtle volunteer program at La Tortuga Feliz, the turtle sanctuary at Playa Viva in Juluchuca, Mexico (30-minutes south of Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa).  We have two options, one upscale staying at the “eco-lux” accommodations of Playa Viva and the second is more modest plan staying in Juluchuca in the homes of local townspeople. Part of the fee for attending will go as a donation to WildCoast to continue their work in turtle conservation throughout the coast of Mexico.  If you have questions about this program and would be interesting to join this September or October, please send us an email to info @ PlayaViva.com.

Just to catch up those of you tracking the progress of the volunteers at La Tortuga Feliz, here are the statistics for last month.  Overall, the results are 27% down from same time last year, so that is why it is so important to have your support in person or through donations to provide the resources necessary to keep the turtle safe.
