Nuevo ZIHclo Escolar

We stopped by a hatchling release yesterday evening on La Ropa, in front of The Thompson. The expert from Ecologia -- same woman who collects eggs in the morning -- was teaching people about the turtles and the process. She said they will always keep the eggs on the same beach where they are laid and that the babies being released today were incubated at the same old spot on La Ropa. So despite the disrepair, it seems they are still using the same spot for now.

I thought the choice of location for the release in front of The Thompson was interesting -- vs where we have seen them in the past by La Perla. If they are indeed moving the tortuguero, The Thompson may be the only spot with the undeveloped beach front land high enough on the beach for it to go. And they would certainly benefit from the PR and marketing opportunities it would bring. (no judgement, just speculating)
