Our tour company works in conjunction with the Verde-Camacho Turtle Sanctuary, which was founded in 1975 with the goal of protecting the Olive Ridley Sea Turtle who lays its eggs on the Northern beaches of Mazatlán, México.
Thanks to the efforts of the National Commission of Naturally Protected Areas (NCNPA) along with the participation of neighboring villages, you can enjoy a government-certified natural reserve with priority given to clean shoreline conservation.
The NCNPA has provided a program for individuals in surrounding villages to receive specialized training in order to preserve the beaches in this naturally-protected area. This program helps these villages to be self sufficient and environmentally aware, enabling them to be more than capable to look after the needs of this area. The assistance of these ones is invaluable.
By participating in a tour with us, you are not only helping baby sea turtles return to their natural habitat, but you are also supporting and sustaining the work done by these local people.
