What is the purpose of ECOPLAN AC?

To work with professionals, students, and people from civil society to foster care and rational sustainable use of our natural resources, focusing mainly on research and conservation of sea turtles, as well as environmental education, performing work for the protection of nests and nesting females, their young, and the collecting of controlled decision-morphometric data.

We work with three species: Olive Ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea) mainly, plus the Leatherback Seaturtle (Dermochelys coriacea) and Black Seaturtle (Chelonia agassizii) , which occur sporadically at the same time. [ Read more about about our Seaturtles! ]

  1. My husband and I will be in Cabo starting Jan 26 for two weeks. I would love to adopt a nest and release while we are there. Are they still beating and hatching in that time frame. A nest is my request for Christmas.

  2. We will be in Cabo from 20 Dec-25th Dec. We would love the chance to take part in baby turtle releasing. How can we book or who can we contact. Please let us know. Thanks!

  3. Hello. My friends and family helped last Dec with a release. It was a magical experience. We will be back this Dec again, and would love the opportunity to help again. I will gladly make another donation as well. Please let me know if you are still doing this.
    Thank you,

  4. I will be in Cabo Feb 10 to 14th. Please let me know if you will be releasing any turtles or helping turtles out during this time. We would love to help!

  5. I live on private beach in Los Barrilles and have several turtle nests. I’m having trouble with people (locals) coming in at night and digging them up. Can you help? My beach is accessible only by going over our property, but they ignore the signs. I was hoping a more “official” sign and roping off areas where nesting is occurring would help. I’m willing to provide all needed materials I just need some educational support as to what and how to do it. Thank you for any help you can provide.
