You can help more turtles like J3630 return. The Sea Turtle Conservation program extends its efforts online through the Tortugatón and your participation in social networks.
In 1991 a very special turtle came to leave her eggs at Xcacel
The turtle caregivers took her data and registered her information.
To ensure the survival of the tortoises, the eggs were transferred to special hatcheries.
After almost 2 months the tortoises were ready to leave the nest.
The tortoises were taken to Xcaret until they were ready to be released.
When the turtles turned one year old they were released
One of this turtles was marked as J3630
On 2004, 14 years later, this turtle came back to the beach where she was born to leave her eggs.
Throughout her 20 years she has put 19 nests and given birth to 1.427 tortoises, which we hope return one day just like their mother.
