Spread the Word

Olive Ridleys begin nesting in July, Blacks in August, and Leatherbacks nest October - April. Please help these endangered species by following the following guidelines:

  • Reduce outdoor lighting in coastal homes
  • Reuse & Recycle your Plactics
  • Don't build bonfires on the beach
  • Participate in Beach Clean-ups
  • Never shine light on nesting turtles
  • Support the local economy to eliminate the need for poaching (shop Pinos not Costco)
  • Never drive on the beach
  • Volunteer for conservation groups
  • Make sure your construction debris is disposed of properly, not thrown in the arroyo.
  • Never eat or buy turtle meat or eggs
  • Promote sustainable fishing by consuming line-caught fish (nets kill turtles)
  • Spread the word

    Please report any turtle nests or tracks in the Todos Santos area to or 145.0353
