Every year, around Mother’s Day, the beaches of Akumal welcome the mama sea turtles to where they will spend hours digging their perfect nests and depositing their eggs, and then a few more hours covering them up before making their way back to sea.
It’s a laborious process, especially since each mama can do this several times in a six month span!
If you are looking to show your mama some extra love and share the love with our conservation efforts—adopting a turtle will be the perfect gift.
Your symbolic adoption helps support the conservation efforts of Centro Ecológico Akumal and the work we do to protect the nesting and hatching sea turtles in the area.
Whether you adopt a turtle family, a turtle nest or even a baby turtle, know that every bit helps our turtle team help the turtles.
