Field Work Guidelines


Sea Turtles are Endangered Species, therefore we use the following Guidelines to minimize impacts during our conservation activities .
  • The use of flashlights or headlamps is prohibited unless they have a red filter (most headlamps do). 
  • Insect repelants, perfume, lotions, and cigarette residue can harm eggs, hatchlings, and nesting adults, The use of these items is prohibited if you will be handling the turtles or eggs.
  • Flash photography is strictly prohibited
  • Dark colored clothing is required for nightly patrols
  • Bonfires are prohibited, they cook unseen nests, and the light inhibits nesting

Tortugueros Las Playitas A.C. takes conservation seriously, and strives to follow these guidelines.

You can Help by:

  • not making bonfires on the beach,
  • picking up someone else's plastic left on the beach,
  • making sure your construction debris is disposed of properly
  • turning off exterior lighting in nesting areas
  • supporting local economies in nesting areas
  • not driving on nesting beaches, nor building on the precious dunes.

      Our Objective is to Minimize Impacts to the Environment
while Employing Locals to Actively participate in the
       Conservation of Endangered Species and their Habitats.
