Sea turtle, another attractive feature of Puerto Vallarta

06/07/2021

The sea turtle has become an icon for Puerto Vallarta, due to the conservation and protection work carried out on the beaches of this city. In the last 8 years, more than 1,600,000 turtles have been born, as well as around 20,800 nests, and in the last year alone 3,300 nests were registered, a work that has been carried out jointly by the municipal government, civil associations, and citizens.

Puerto Vallarta has volunteers who cooperate in all the actions carried out in environmental matters, in such a way that it has become an icon for the presentation of this marine species. They have been working for more than 30 years in these places, recognizing that it is a very complex 24-hour work, patrolling during the night and day with administration tasks, so at the beginning of this season he encouraged the volunteers to give their best in order to overcome the numbers and protect the sea turtles.
