“We are providing the different sectors with the necessary information, both to the employees and the tourists, so that they know the function of the area restrictions that are placed in the back of the hotels in the beach area, as well as the preventive measures to contribute to a successful nesting season of turtles,” he said.
He also said that in the most important specifications is that at the end of the day hotels and vendors in the federal zone turn off the lights on the beach area, remove the beach furniture that usually they place in the sand, as well as objects that represent an obstacle for the turtles, this to avoid any human intervention in the nesting process.
