Protection and Conservation of Turtles. The Turtles camp is a small organization located outside from Puerto Escondido with the goal of capturing and helping injured animals and helping the turtles to reproduce.
The turtle camp where volunteers can go for one night could be in different beaches depending on the season and availability. The nearest turtle camp is in La Punta area close to our Surf Camp and the other one is about 15 minutes out of Puerto Escondido.
These camps are responsible for saving turtle eggs as much as they can by going out at night doing patrols by walk or by quad.
Once the volunteers find turtle eggs, they transport them and save them in one special reserve.
In the turtle camp, volunteers can help by making patrols looking for the turtle eggs, transporting them and putting them in a safe place near the turtle camp for make sure that nobody is stealing them.
