Friday 1st November 2019. Turtles nesting on Taboga and what, where and when.

November 1, 2019

Joining me today is Cynthia Mulder and Victoria Arce from the island of Taboga, just a 45 minute ferry ride from the city. Known as the island of flowers, but a new event is occurring turtles returning to the place where they were born to lay their eggs. Taboga being very much a tourist favorite and we are coming up to the local holidays, there will be a lot of visitors. So steps are being taken to protect the nests from harm. Also please do not sit on the nice sculptures and what goes to Taboga does not stay on Taboga, please take your rubbish home with you. Thank you.


Apart from the local holiday festivities there is not too much happening. Yazmin takes a look at what, where and when.
