“Baby Turtle Release”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

Rewarding and educational experience! After three attempts of driving down a washboard road to the release site..I must say it was totally worth the trip. The road is in the process of being improved, so the going should be a little easier. Send them an email and they will send a return when it is time for release and directions to the site. Shared a video and a little book they publish with my K-1 class and they loved it! No dogs of course, and bring drinking water as there is no facilities.

The Turtle Sanctuary is now located on the beach in Las Tunas!! take Calle Mangos west, turn right when you reach the dune heading north, go about 1/4 mile and park in the arroyo on the hard pack. Please don't drive up on to the beach! Gracias!
