The Grupo Tortuguero holds a meeting every year that is all about the beautiful and endangered turtles that call the area home. While its beginnings are quite humble (consisting of only around 40 residents), it is now the regions largest conservation meeting of grassroots activists. The meeting is open to the public, and it will have several workshops on the ecology of the oceans, with a special focus on how this ecology impacts the lives of the Baja sea turtles. This is truly an event where you go to learn and where you get the benefit of helping a truly conservation minded organization. There will be workshops and educational activities reserved for the young ones.
Location: Auditorio CICIMAR-IPN, Av Insituto Poltecnico Nacional s/n Col. Playa Palo de Santa Rita, La Paz.
The official date for this event has been announced. The La Paz Grupo Tortuguero will take place January 27th, 2012 from 9:00am to 2:00pm.
