So far, a total of 50,000 baby sea turtles have been released during the 2022 season (August to December).

Elements of the Patrulla Verde, in coordination with the staff of Ecología Municipal, work together to protect this species by safeguarding the nests and rescuing turtles in vulnerable situations.

Last Friday, Holi Beach was the venue where almost 2,000 baby sea turtles were released.

Biologist Idelfonso Ramos, supervisor of Environment, pointed out that this free event was attended by about 100 people, mostly children who witnessed and participated in their release.

Even with these actions, it is important to create awareness among the residents and visitors of the destination to avoid harming the adult turtles that come out to lay their eggs, so there are instructions to continue with the nightly tours of the beaches and to respond to reports in a timely manner.

“When I first opened my gallery in 1986, my relationship with Vallarta Lifestyles started for the need of people to know me and, because it is one of the very few quality publications in the destination, I decided to advertise in it. There are clients that still remember me for the magazine, with whom I have had several years of relationship.”

“We have a close relationship with Vallarta Lifestyles. Since it beginnings, it has been the most important media for the touristic promotion of our destination. Its content has always been excellent, due to the quality of its articles and spectacular photos. For the type of readers that it reaches, this the ideal publication to advertise our listings.”

“There are lots of reasons why we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles for several years. One of them is that they know pretty well their target, because they know who are their readers and they adapt as much as possible the content and material that is offered. For these reasons they have a growing number of readers which is very important for us. Another reason is that many people  —including us— think that the magazine has been as a serious publication since its beginnings. Historically, Vallarta Lifestyles has known how to capture the audience and has done it pretty well."
