PROJECT: For over 14 years this project has been organized in the Turtle Camp at Colola
Beach with extraordinary results. This project is the source of many beautiful stories;
hundreds of volunteers from all over the world had participated. The aim of this projects is to
protect the marine turtles working in tight collaboration with the local population who lives
in Colola Town or as they say “the place where dreams come true” volunteers along with
local people will realize activities to protect the turtles, and will help to ensure the survival of

Negra (Black Turtle) and Golfina (Olive Riddle Turtle), the size of the turtles vary from 1 meter
to 1.5 meters long and the weight from 40 Kg to 100 Kg, Every turtle makes a nest of around
150 eggs. If you like nature, to spend a time in a astonishing beautiful virgin beach far away

this project is for you! If you want to see more information about the project visit the

ACTIVITIES: The main work consists in patrolling the beach at night, find the adult turtles and
collect the eggs, burying them in a secure place (vivero in Spanish) and set the baby turtles
free back in to the ocean. This must be carried out by night since turtles do not go out the
ocean by day (because of natural predators, it is safer for turtles to get out the ocean in the
dark). In collaboration with local indigenous people from Colola, volunteers will seek for the
turtles taking care of their eggs and the baby turtles. Locals are very friendly and working
with them is very pleasant as they explain to the group what to do. We need very motivated
volunteers who really want to get involved in this project willing to interact with the local
people and their culture.
There are also some extra activities to do with the local people to help to improve the town
like setting names to the streets or helping to arrange an all purpose play ground for the
children and maybe some cleaning tasks, but it depends on your initiative! Local people are
very open to participate in other activities and volunteers can also propose their own
initiatives, so your ideas will be welcomed!

PROJECT: For over 14 years this project has been organized in the Turtle Camp at Colola
Beach with extraordinary results. This project is the source of many beautiful stories;
hundreds of volunteers from all over the world had participated. The aim of this projects is to
protect the marine turtles working in tight collaboration with the local population who lives
in Colola Town or as they say “the place where dreams come true” volunteers along with
local people will realize activities to protect the turtles, and will help to ensure the survival of
the turtles for the future generations. There are two species of turtles arriving to this area:
Negra (Black Turtle) and Golfina (Olive Riddle Turtle), the size of the turtles vary from 1 meter
to 1.5 meters long and the weight from 40 Kg to 100 Kg, Every turtle makes a nest of around
150 eggs. If you like nature, to spend a time in a astonishing beautiful virgin beach far away
from hotels and tourists, and witness the magic that nature had made for millions of years
this project is for you! If you want to see more information about the project visit the
camplink at www.vivemexico.org/colola_turtles where you can see pictures, more
information, comments of past volunteers, etc.

ACTIVITIES: The main work consists in patrolling the beach at night, find the adult turtles and
collect the eggs, burying them in a secure place (vivero in Spanish) and set the baby turtles
free back in to the ocean. This must be carried out by night since turtles do not go out the
ocean by day (because of natural predators, it is safer for turtles to get out the ocean in the
dark). In collaboration with local indigenous people from Colola, volunteers will seek for the
turtles taking care of their eggs and the baby turtles. Locals are very friendly and working
with them is very pleasant as they explain to the group what to do. We need very motivated
volunteers who really want to get involved in this project willing to interact with the local
people and their culture.
There are also some extra activities to do with the local people to help to improve the town
like setting names to the streets or helping to arrange an all purpose play ground for the
children and maybe some cleaning tasks, but it depends on your initiative! Local people are
very open to participate in other activities and volunteers can also propose their own
initiatives, so your ideas will be welcomed!

PROJECT: This is the 3rd year this project is organized at the Turtle Camp Sirenito Macho in
Marquelia Town, one of the goals of this project is to create awareness within the local
population, at national and international level, about the importance of the preservation,
protection and rescue of the population of marine turtles in the Mexican coastal line. In this
camp there is a very interesting situation since from the eight existing species of marine
turtles in the world, seven arrive in Mexico and two of them nest in our working zone: the
Golfina turtle (Lepidochelys olivacea) and the Laud turtle (Dermochelys coriacea), both
endangered species. The size of the turtles vary from 0.3 to 0.5 meters (golfina) to 2.10
meters long and the weight up to 200 Kg (Laud Turtle). Every turtle makes a nest of around
150 eggs. If you like nature, the adventure to spend a time in a very nice typical beach close
to a nice Mexican Town, witness the magic that nature had made for millions of years this
project is for you! If you want to see more information about the project visit the camplink at
www.vivemexico.org/marquelia where you can see pictures, more information, comments of
past volunteers, etc.

ACTIVITIES: Volunteers will carry out different tasks to help to preserve two different kinds of
marine turtles (Lepidochelys Olivacea and Dermochelys Coracea) by collecting the eggs that
the females lay down in the zone and putting them into a yard at the turtles’ camping. They
will also take care of the baby turtles, volunteers will help to release and lead them safely back
to the ocean. They will also help to collect statistical data and patrol the zone where the turtles
nest at night. They will have, finally, the opportunity of contribute to cleaning the beach.
Volunteers will also take part in workshops in the local schools to promote the awareness
about protecting the life of the turtles to ensure their survival in the future and teach children
and new generations a new relationship in harmony with the environment and in peace with
nature.
