Three green iguanas and seven turtles were rescued by agents of the Regional Security Division, within a courier and parcel company of the Mérida International Airport.
The animals were found when the federal police conducted random checks on several courier and parcel companies at Mérida’s “Manuel Crescencio Rejón” airport.
When entering the hangar of the courier company, personnel of the Federal Police found a box that had been inspected with previous authorization of the manager, containing the three green iguanas and the seven turtles of different species protected by the Norm Official 059-Semarnat-2010.

Therefore, the 10 specimens were insured and handed over for protection to personnel of the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (Profepa), and it was reported to the Agent of the Federal Public Ministry.
