Sea Turtle Conservation With RED Sustainable Travel
As their website puts it, RED Sustainable Travel is much (much) more than a tour company: they work to finance crucial conservation projects throughout Baja Sur, and one that you can experience first-hand is the work that RED does with Grupo Tortuguero, to conserve the endangered sea turtles in the area. Fisherman that used to poach the turtles are now working diligently to save them, and alongside RED travel, you can work with them to measure and tag sea turtles that are caught and then released, to help monitor the population. It's a magical experience to have such intimate interactions with these creatures who possess such grace and beauty. In addition to hosting private groups, RED works with school groups, to educate young people about conversation and provide them with, in many cases, life-altering experiences. Traveling with RED is traveling mindfully, and it will provide you with experiences that you'll carry with you for the rest of your life.
