  • Protection and Conservation of Sea Turtles Projects

Places:            Cañas Island, Los Santos and Mata Oscura Beach, Veraguas

Seasons:         June – November

In the world, there are eight species of sea turtles, which five spawn in our shores.  The beaches of Azuero, are among the few in the world where you can see in the rainy season thousands of turtles coming to lay their eggs on the sand.

 

According to experts

turtles seek this area the Azuero Peninsula, because the continental shelf is shorter and near shore waters are deeper, plus own darkness of these places that facilitates nesting.

We offer programs

Where participants can support communities in conservation activities of these species, such as patrolling beaches, beach cleaning, counting turtle eggs and hatching, among other activities related protection projects.
