Are Sea Turtles Protected in Guatemala?
The answer isn’t clear. While talking to local workers they expressed that sea turtles are not widely protected in Guatemala. Locals often steal the newly hatched Parlama Sea Turtle eggs to sell on the black market. To save these majestic creatures from extinction local hotels and conservation organizations buy these eggs instead and work tirelessly to ensure their survival. Be Humanitarian is thrilled to team up with local conservationists for this annual experience. We believe all creatures great and small are valuable and we are grateful we can help with this vital mission. Thank you for joining us!
