The appearance of a turtle that nested in the area of the main Malecon of Progreso surprised residents and visitors of this city on Thursday July 5. It is a specimen of the Carey species that arrived at the beach of this coastal municipality to spawn.
Upon noticing the presence of the reptile, residents reported it to the authorities, and agents of the Municipal Police arrived at the site to protect the area.
Personnel of the Marine Turtle Care and Rehabilitation Program of the Yucatan Coast (Programa de Atención y Rehabilitación de Tortugas Marinas de la Costa de Yucatán: Partmacy), arrived immediately after the sighting report was made.
The eggs were transferred by Parmacy experts to the Cetmar facilities for their protection and eventual release of the offspring.
According to data collected, the turtle deposited approximately 117 eggs.
The sea turtle nesting season in Yucatán is currently in force, it begins in April and ends up in October, but this event is totally unusual, since sea turtles have been avoiding the beaches of Progreso for many years now, due to the intense human activity in the area.
