Protection Corral extended
With quite large numbers of sea turtles nesting on our beach this year, our protection corral filled up quickly and two days ago we had no more space for new nests. So exactly 1 month after originally building our corral we had to extend the protection area yesterday.
The additional created space that can accommodate another 280 nests looks huge and we already feared to have gone a bit over the top. But last night 29 (!) mother turtles, a number we never before had in one single night, nested on our beach and the first two new rows are already filled.
Right now we protect a staggering 349 nests with over 40,000 eggs.
