Turtle hatchlings run over
- 0 08 de octubre de 2013
Por Carlos Gasca > Quequi.. This article notes that Jesica Fernández Valentín was exercising along the Caribbean Coastal Road when she noticed the baby turtles who were getting caught in the bushes, and others were moving toward the road. She said, "As best we could, we rescued them and took them to the sea, but unfortunately several had died when they tried to cross the street." The Municipal Police arrived on the scene to assist in the rescue of about forty baby turtles. As of September, the Department Parks and Museums had released a record breaking 60,000 hatchlings. This season they rescued 1425 nests containing 165,351 eggs, which are buried and incubated in a controlled area at the Tortugranja, after they are collected from the coasts where the sea turtles make their nests.0 comentarios Leer toda la noticia

Last night was said to be the peak night for the Draconin meteor shower, but we only saw one. The Orianid meteor shower due on the 18th & 19th will be affected by light from the full moon.
In October there are releases of baby turtles that were incubated at the Tortugranja, at dusk on the eastern beaches of Media Luna or Guadalupana. The Blue Crabs migrate with the full moons, and there are usually organized groups to help them safely across the roads. Watch out for them in Sac Bajo and along the southeastern part of the island. The American holiday of Halloween is observed by the expats & a few candy loving kids, while the whole community observes Day of the Dead on November 1st & 2nd. Special foods are available in the weeks before, and Hanal Pixan altars appear in mid or late October.

Isla Animals Daily
Update: This is Sally. It’s amazing to see the pups come in so skinny
that it makes their ears looks huge by comparison. When I first
started to rescue puppies I thought that it was some sort of Isla
Mujeres mixed breed with enormous ears. Luckily they grow into those
ears as we fattened them up. Sally did so well and went into a
wonderful home. She came in during one of our clinics in Cancun.
There are so many puppies on the streets of Cancan that it’s heart
breaking. We do put some of the adult dogs back on the streets after
we spay/neuter them and usually at the same time de-worm and de-tick
them and whatever else they need. Many of the street dogs would not be
able to adjust to living in a home. But we are the puppy rescue and
Isla Animals never puts a puppy back on the streets. That was how we
ended up with 65 puppies last January because , of course, they were
added to the dogs and pups from Isla Mujeres who always come first.
You don't have to give any info to vote, and it takes you right to the Isla Animals option. Very easy! Click this link: Please Help My Animal Shelter Win
