Help us raise $25,000 to protect and conserve the important habitat of endangered sea turtles in the coast of Oaxaca, Mexico.
Last week, more than 100,000 olive ridley sea turtles nested on the beach of Morro Ayuta along Mexico’s Oaxacan coast. This incredible exodus of sea turtles from the ocean to the beach marks the second “arribada” of the season in Morro Ayuta, where 35,000 of the endangered sea turtles nested in the first night alone.
Last year, on this same beach, a total of 14 “arribadas” occurred, and more than 1 million sea turtles laid 90 million eggs that produced 30 million hatchlings. Morro Ayuta is without question, one of the world’s most important Olive Ridley nesting sites. Less than 10 miles away, the giant Leatherback – the largest of all living turtles, whose population has reduced over 40% in the past 30 years – nests on the picturesque beach of Barra de la Cruz.
However, with a survival rate of 1 in 1,000 for each hatchling – sea turtles face many threats – from poaching and pollution to habitat destruction.
With sea turtle nesting season in full swing, the time has never been more important to ensure the conservation of these iconic species. The protection of these beaches is key for sea turtles’ survival. Join WILDCOAST in our efforts to save sea turtle nesting beaches along Oaxaca’s Pacific coastline by making a donation today. Your support will make a measurable impact on the survival of these species. $25 – Can protect 12.5 acres of critical sea turtle nesting beaches along the coast of Oaxaca. $50 – Can help protect 100 sea turtle hatchlings along the sandy beaches of Morro Ayuta. $100 – Can protect 50 acres of critical sea turtle nesting beaches along the coast of Oaxaca.
