My buddy Simon Baker whom I met at Juara Turtle Project mid-2014 is making waves. He has committed himself to the act of turtle conservation in Nayarit, Mexico.

Working alongside him in Juara Beach, Tioman Island was amazing. He’s outright witty, funny and amazingly dedicated. I guess he has found his comfort zone in Mexico and honestly, extremely proud of him.

  • It is estimated that nearly 10,000 sea turtle eggs are lost to poachers on this beach every year.
  • Poachers from two towns frequent the unprotected beach of Malpaso.
  • In order to adequately protect Malpaso beach we need to patrol the beach throughout the night.

If you have a passion to care and protect wildlife, do help out Simon and his team at Malpaso Beach either by donation or simply getting down to Mexico. He’s in need for funds as well as manpower.

Let’s support an act of kindness.

Malpaso Turtle Retreat

Sea Turtles are an endangered species. There has been a 50% reduction in population size since the 1960s. Simply a jaw dropping statistic. One of the major reasons for this is the poaching of turtle eggs from their nesting beaches. One of these beaches is Malpaso Beach and during the peak nesting season this poaching occurs on a nightly basis. It is estimated that nearly 10,000 eggs are lost to poachers on this beach every year. We are a non-profit NGO, run solely by volunteers dedicated to protection of the sea turtle nesting on Malpaso Beach. We aim to stop this poaching and help these turtles but we need your help.
