About Tulum & Turtles Discovery
About the Turtles
Unfortunately, all 7 species of Sea Turtles are endangered. This is due to illegal poaching and pollution. In Mexico, turtles are protected since 1990. Fishing, hunting, or poaching turtles is now a Federal offense. Most species visit Mexico Out of the 7 species of Sea Turtles that remain, 6 of them nest in Mexico. They are thousands of miles Whether it is for migrational reasons, for mating, or feeding, Sea Turtles can travel hundreds or thousands of kilometers before reaching their destination. The temperature of the nest defines the gender of the Turtles Warmer temperatures produce mostly females, while lower temperatures produce mostly males. A tempered climate usually yields a similar amount of males and females. Baby turtles use the moon as guidance Sea Turtles are photo-tactical, which means they are attracted by the light. They use the brightest light as guidance, which is usually the reflection of the moon on the water. They avoid the shade, including the vegetation at the top of the dunes, where danger may lurk.
