Save, learn, help, protect, enjoy and contribute. This tour is for anyone who wants to leave Cozumel even better than how they found it. You will be led by a biologist’s team member who spearheads the Save the endangered Sea Turtle Program for a hands on tour. Cozumel now boasts the most Sea Turtle nests per kilometer than any other area in Mexico. There are several aspects to turtle protection & conservation; and this tour will actually allow you to save the turtles yourself. Every evening the turtles hatch and make their way to the sea. This is a natural process, but in the frenzy of the nest only about 80% of the hatched turtles actually have the stamina and jolt of energy to climb out. On this tour we backtrack the previous evening's event and help rescue the 20% of turtles who were not ready for the dash to the sea and recover these turtles until their inner-organs are mature enough to be released by digging them out. This process is extremely heartwarming and satisfactory as you will be in direct contact with nature and you will be directly involved in saving the little life of the turtle so it may have a true chance at life.
