GVI in the Marine Turtle Festival 2009!..

This last weekend we had the Chance to participate as volunteers along with the CONANP, Flora, Fauna y Cultura de Mexico, CEA (Centro Ecologico de Akumal), UQRoo and others in The 7th Annual Marine Turtle Festival, Tulum 2009.

GVI came with around 60 volunteers from both bases to be part of this special event.

During these 3 days, we had the chance to get involved with the community teaching them about conservation and about the importance of taking care of the Turtles that are born on our beaches every single year..

Everyone enjoyed being part of the beach clean, sand castles and kite contests in Playa Pescadores and helping with the symbolic dance and turtle release in Xcacel. GVI members got really involved in this Festival. Playing games with the kids all day long, looking at their happy faces while they learnt that helping the turtles is better than killing them or eating their eggs!!

We also went to Akumal Beach to do another turtle release and keep playing with the little kids. And of course, some people went snorkeling with the turtles and got to see some cool stuff under the water!

t is great to live in the bases and go diving every day, but it sure feels great to get involved with this kind of events that happen often here in Quintana Roo.

The more we help and the more we get involved with the conservation, the longer our planet will live and will remain being the way it is, a stunning place to live!
GRACIAS to every one who was part of this event and who helped to make this possible! and we look forward to next´s year Turtle Festival, hoping we will have the same response from all of you..
