Cabo San Lucas Turtle Release - The Olive Ridley or Golfina, is one of 5 species found in the waters off Baja California Sur. During turtle nesting season, June through February, female sea turtles return to the beaches where they were born to lay their eggs. This is a really vulnerable time for the eggs and the hatchlings. There are just too many natural predators and man-made hazards. To give them a better chance at survival, conservation groups step in.
