Ridley Turtles Thrive in Oaxaca, Mexico

The state of Oaxaca has a claim to fame with its “Escobilla” beach in Santa Maria Tonameca, Mexico - it is the site of one of the largest sea turtle nesting sites in the world. Take a look at MexicoToday for a video of this beautiful example of the rich biodiversity available in the region.

Over the past decade, Mexico has been working towards a sustainable and more eco-friendly nation and "the National Commission of Natural Protected Areas claims that two factors – patience and perseverance – are to credit for the survival of Ridley turtles."
