All species of sea turtles are protected by federal laws and international agreements, but all are unfortunately now classified as Vulnerable or Endangered. At Colibri Boutique Hotels we work closely with the local council and their program ‘Kanan Aak’ for the Protection & Conservation of Turtles of Tulum. Their aim is to give the Turtles who hatch in Tulum the best chance of survival. In coordination with hotel El Pez, they patrol the beaches each night of the nesting season, marking nests and moving eggs to a secure location if the nest is too exposed. Then when the eggs hatch, they help the little guys get safely to the water. For many years now Colibri Boutique hotels has provided the funding for the patrol staff and the quad bike transportation they need to do their valuable work.
