Sea Turtles in Los Cabos

The Sea of Cortez and Baja California peninsula are home to five species of sea turtles; Hawksbill, Loggerhead, Leatherback, Green Turtle and Olive Ridley - all of which are endangered. Thankfully we have ASUPMATOMA (The Association for the Protection of the Environment and the Marine Turtle in Southern Baja) and other local grassroot organizations that have formed to help & protect the sea turtles.

Late August until early December is considered turtle season here on the Baja when the turtles come home to lay their eggs.

  • It is estimated that 35,000 sea turtles are illegally hunted and killed annually throughout Baja California.
