Saving Turtle Sammy

November 01 2019

If you are an adult with the soul of a child and still remember the face you put on seeing the beloved movie "The Adventures of Sammy", especially the scene in the 'Sammy' comes out of his egg and almost eats him a seagull, imagine what you would do if you were in a resort that has its own turtle camp in which professional technicians supervise the raising of turtle eggs.

An excellent example is the Valentin Imperial Riviera Maya hotel (Mexico), which since its inauguration in 2007, and given its privileged location on one of the best-kept beaches of the Riviera Maya (Playa del Secreto), participates in a government protection program of turtles managing their own camp.

From May to October, at which time the 4 species of sea turtles (Caretta caretta - loggerhead turtle -, Chelonia mydas - white turtle for Quintana Roo, green turtle for other states -, Eretmochelys imbricata - Hawksbill turtle - and Dermochelys coriacea - turtle lute-) that nest in the Mexican Caribbean land on the beaches of the area to spawn, a team of professional technicians watch every night the 844 meters long that the camp covers to identify where the turtles make their nests and thus be able to In the morning, collect the eggs and transfer them to the hatchery, where they are identified, cataloged and reburied to complete their maturation.
