After laying eggs, turtle covers and return to sea.
A group of tourists in Puerto Peñasco alerted municipal authoritirs on Thursday morning, July 3rd, of sea turtle who had made her way out of the Sea of Cortez and to the beach to lay eggs, before returning to the sea. The turtle appeared in front of the condo area along Sandy Beach to begin the egg laying process before then covering up the nest and returning to its natural habitat.
Based on photos and video the PROFEPA inspectors will determine the characteristics of the sea turtle, as well as the number of eggs deposited. Once this work is complete, PROFEPA staff will keep watch over the turtle egg nest in upholding enviromental law.
