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.
