Turtle conservation programs

Hi, I will be on island the second and third week of August. I am looking for information on turtle conservation programs taking place during that time.

Thanks, O__

1. Re: Turtle conservation programs

There was a discussion about a cruise ship program yesterday. While not exact, you can garner some information on that one about what goes on:

The programs are, ultimately, run by the Cozumel Parks and Museums Foundation (http://www.cozumelparks.com/esp/fpmc.cfm) and by the city's Department of Ecology (czm4you.com/cozumels-municipal-department-of…).

If you're a member of the museum, you can arrange to participate in their program directly. Otherwise, you can do this at http://www.cozumelinsider.com/TURTLESEE. The municipal volunteer program is less organized - you need to get yourself to the right place at the right time (which isn't difficult) and be prepared to do some work.

Good information about both programs is available at http://www.cozumelinsider.com/TURTLES (which is not the same link as above).

We're on the island currently and participated with the turtle see two nights ago. It was amazing! Be prepared for a long night (we didn't get back until 2am) and there's lots of walking. Follow the instructions regarding the post with all the turtle see info.
