Sea Turtle Sanctuary

My family’s love for traveling has always had an impact on my life. It has given me the opportunity to vacation in some of the most beautiful places, such as our recent trip to Mazatlan, Mexico. This trip to Mazatlan I enjoyed not only the warmth and relaxation of the beaches but the AMAZING experience of working with a local sea turtle sanctuary to set 100’s of newly hatched sea turtles free into the ocean for their first time…

Sea turtles are endangered and anything to help the population growth is a step worth taking. The Sanctuary volunteers dig out the laid eggs found along the beaches and protect them until they hatch and are ready to be released into the ocean. This allows for more to make it to the ocean and survive.  Not only did donating to the sanctuary to be a part of the release give me a chance to hold these adorable turtles but it made me feel a part of something more important starting them on their journey of life.
