Leaving Los Barriles for the summer, or even a few weeks? If you are
in need of a house/pet sitter, I can help. I have been living and
working in Los Barriles for the past 4 months, and know the ins and
outs fairly well. Young female, single, non-smoker, non-drinker. I
speak Spanish and have caretaking experience as well as a fairly
diverse resume. Also looking for part time work or odd jobs, have
local references. Trying to save money to attend university in La
Paz in August. Contact Charlie at
As you know every year we have sea turtles arrive to the East Cape
Coast line and last year we had our second season with them. Our non
profit organization ( PATRONATO CABO DEL ESTE ,A.C. ) worked hard to
accomplished the goal to protect them. By patrolling every day we
found over 250 nests last year, 5 of them were from leather backs
and 3 from green turtles but only 30 of them hatched and the
rest were eaten by coyotes , dogs , people etc .. so as you can see
it was a big loss of them. This year we would like to protect them
better but we need help. Last year a couple of local Americans
loaned us a couple of ATVS and the Hotel Palmas de Cortez and Villas
de Cortez helped us with gas and hotel support when we need it. This
year also we hired a marine biologist to keep track and log every
nest and also to build a nursery where we think it can be best to
protect the nests. With the volunteer group and your help it can be
done !! Also this year we became a part of the Sea Turtles Network
in the Baja Peninsula , and we went to our first yearly meeting
hosted in Loreto to do a presentation for the East Cape first time
ever. Please check our web page is
Also last October we had our first Turtle Queen from the communities
from Los Barriles , Buena Vista , La Capilla and La Rivera , and we
had such a great event approx. 500 people attend. Kids ,
parents , tourist , etc . and our non profit teaching summer school
environmental education for local kids is such a success !!
Also we worked together with the local authorities such as PROFEPA (
Environmental Protection Agency ) CONANP ( National Parks Agency )
they allow to place signs on your beach if we need to or fence your
beach if we have to . please check in front of Palmas de Cortez as
an example !
Thank you for your understanding and we will share the turtle
release with all your guest !!! Once we have our calendar and log
together we will let you know exactly dates !!!
