In collaboration with the conservation program Tortuga Municipal and El Colegio de la Frontera Sur, we support activities focused on the preservation and study of populations of sea turtles that nest on Cozumel and inhabit the waters surrounding the island with trained volunteers. Quintana Roo’s beaches are considered prime nesting areas for Loggerhead and Green turtles. Hawksbill turtles also frequent Cozumel reefs during some stages of their development.
