Costa Careyes is saving the Sea Turtles! 

For over 33 years, sea turtles arriving to nest in Careyes have been protected by the Brignone family, Careyes residents and a dedicated team of locals. In 1983 a preservation program to increase their chance of survival against predators officially began with the help of biologist Alejandro Pena de Niz.

Only 10 nests were protected the first year. To date, 16,579 nests have been protected and more than 1,350,000 newborn turtles from four different species — Olive Ridley, Black, Hawksbill, and Leatherback — have been released back into their natural habitat.

Costa Careyes is the only place on the Pacific Coast of Mexico where the Hawksbill sea turtles come to nest regularly.

The past season, was record breaking! For the first time in 33 years, 2058 sea turtles nested in Playa Teopa. This population will only increase in the future. This is why The ?! Careyes Foundation seeks to expand the facilities in Costa Careyes to protect this new influx, to ensure the endangered sea turtles continue to have a safe sanctuary in which to nest for years to come.  

Both locals and visitors are encouraged to participate in collecting nests and releasing hatchlings, providing a unique insight and appreciation for one of the world’s oldest surviving species.
