On July 24, 25 & 26, over 73 people attended a workshop provided by Grupo Tortuguero de las Californias. As a result of the workshop there are now over 50 participants signed up to monitor the beaches in our area; San Francisco, Villa Hermosa/La Posada, Algodones and Miramar. The monitoring is being done under the guidance of Elsa Coria, a local wildlife veterinarian from CRIFFS A.C., and Grupo Tortuguero. The nests which are located will be marked and monitored by authorized individuals. If you are walking on the beaches and discover turtle tracks that may lead to a nest, you can contact one of the following people:


ELSA CORIA 622-152-9934 or elsa.crrifs@gmail.com
JANITZIO EGIDO VILLAREAL 622-152-6292 or janitzio.crrifs@gmail.com
DANIEL CASTRO 622-138-7657
DULCE ARCE 622-122-0100
GUAYMAS ADVENTURES 622-162-7969 or 622-162-7972


Alternately, you can contact either Charles or Lindy at 622-100-0789 and we will call or What’s App the folks on this list and make sure that somebody shows up to assist in marking, dating and recording the co-ordinates of the nest.  So far two nests have been located and marked and numerous other turtle tracks have been observed.


This training and monitoring is being done under the auspices of CRRIFS (Centro de Rescate, Rehabilitación e Investigación de Fauna Silvestre, A.C.) a non-profit organization. Eighteen years ago, Elsa Coria, a veterinarian and Janitzio Egido, a biologist, began to rescue and rehabilitate injured wildlife so that they could be released into their natural habitat. During this time, a positive bond was formed with the authorities of PROFEPA (Procuraduría Federal de Protección al Ambiente). It was obvious that a formal organization needed to be established as CRRIFS grew but it was only in 2017 that the non-profit was formalized. The original two founders were also joined by Sergio Andrade, an engineer. These three were the founding members of CRIFFS. Also a network of volunteers was established to help carry out the intensive work of the Center which relies upon donations to carry out their work.


Today the Center continues its work, responding to reports from the general public or PROFEPA. It also has two major programs: a) disentanglement of sea lions, with the support of the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito California and local society in Sonora, and b) conservation and nesting of sea turtles, in collaboration with the Centro Tortuguero Las Californias, A.C. a tri-national, local non-profit organization.


If you would like more information regarding CRRIFS, any of their programs, or to volunteer, please contact the people named above. Or, they can be found on Facebook or the website.

JZ: If this is your idea of humor, it isn't funny !!!! But, I will take this opportunity to communicate the rules. 


As pointed out in the fine post by Lindy and Charles, this year's turtle conservation is well organized. There are very strong laws against endangering or doing something bad to a sea turtle or their activities. The laws and penalties are stricter than the drug laws. 


There is a fine large volunteer organization monitoring the beaches. They will report you or yours to PROFEPA - the environmental police force for the Republic of Mexico. PROFEPA has the power to prosecute you and jail you. PROFEPA is completely behind and endorses the activities of the volunteer group. Many of the group have cameras with them to take pictures of the offenders. And, of course, we have your post on this forum to add to any report of violations.

These photos are from 2 seasons ago in Piedra Pintas beach. Please report sighting of any tracks so they can collect data and possibly mark the nests.

This information was recently published in the SEptember 18th WhatsUpSanCarlos newsletter.


Watch your step! Turtle nests are on our beaches. 



This week there have been a number of turtles laying eggs along our San Carlos beaches. The sand around these eggs have been cordoned off on San Francisco beach, La Posada beach, and Algodones beach. 


Please keep your ATVs away and your dogs on a leash near these areas so that the baby turtle eggs stay intact and the hatchlings have a chance to live. 


If you are walking on the beaches and discover turtle tracks that may lead to a nest, you can contact one of the following people. They will make sure someone comes to mark, date, and record the co-ordinates of the nest, as well as ensure the area is blocked off. 


Elsa Coria 622-152-9934 or elsa.crrifs@gmail.com


 Charles or Lindy 622-100-0789 or lcw.mcr@gmail.com Janitzio Villareal 622-152-6292 or janitzio.crrifs@gmail.com Daniel Castro 622-138-7657 Dulce Arce 622-122-0100 Guaymas Adventures 622-162-7969 or 622-162-7972 Many turtles return to the same spots each time they are ready to reproduce. Let's make our San Carlos beaches a safe place for them to come!

So, JZ, help me out here, are you threatening to bribe officials to put people in jail that are trying to help Mexico enforce the laws to protect the turtles?

Jimmy is correct. JZ has been known, in the past, to cut ruts in the sand with his vehicle(s) to inhibit the hatchlings from getting to the water. Him and his family. Someone in the group needs to advise PROFEPA of JZ's proclivities.

I just like joshing the ole boy.  You'd think at by age 70 he'd be able to take a joke by now instead of cryin' like a little school girl.



Btw, I hate the gringos who go to Mexico and try to make it like the US.  MX should deport those types.

Working on a new video.  Rode a totally deserted 200 mile stretch of the Pacific coast of Baja with my 14 and 16 yos over the summer.  Rode it down and back over a couple weeks.

Going through hours of GoPro and drone footage.

One of the clips:  https://youtu.be/CbSwzq82jHg.

¨Btw, I hate the gringos who go to Mexico and try to make it like the US. MX should deport those types.¨

The turtle effort is a Mexican effort that was opened up to some Americans and Canadians who wanted to help and were willing to take their time to be certified to do it properly. There is no ¨trying to make Mexico like the US¨ about it.

JZ: If you are criticizing the motives of gringos, you are on the wrong thread. Most of those 50+ volunteers who are doing turtle conservation work each day at about 5am are gringos. They are doing a phenomenal job. They are led by a team of highly trained Mexican scientists. It is a wonderful demonstration of two cultures working together to protect those turtles who visit our shores and their children who will return as adults.
