Predicting ~114,000 eggs during turtle nesting season

ISLA MUJERES, 1 de junio.-

   The number of baby turtles released this year is expected to exceed las year when 113,700 hatchlings were released, due to the tireless efforts of the members of the protection program.  Last year there were 972  nests protected, with 113,700 eggs and the same number of hatchlings were released. (The number of eggs always exceeds the number of hatchlings, with the usual hatch out rate being reported in the news articles as ~90%). The turtles are of the species hawksbill, green, and loggerhead. Personnel with the Committee to Protect Sea Turtles reported that they expect to protect about 114,000 eggs this year, and to release a similar number of baby turtles.
       The season for protecting the sea turtles began May 15 and will conclude October 15, with the objective of caring for and protecting the eggs from predators or poaching, to produce a larger number of offspring. Their other goal is to educate the community about the importance of conservation of these species. The first eggs were brought to the Tortugranja for protection on Friday, May 20.

We are all sailors

ISLA MUJERES, 1 de junio.-

  Commander of the local Naval base, Vice Admiral Tomás López Hernández, said that the celebration of Naval Day/ Dia de la Marina, which was instituted 74 years ago, is not just for the Marina mercante, but rather June 1st celebrates everyone who is connected with the sea. He said, "This means our friends the fishermen, the providers of nautical tours, and even the staff on the docks, are celebrated on this day." This includes the Navy, the Merchant Marines / la Marina de Guerra, la Marina mercante, since it was officially declared by the President of Mexico in 1942, to be celebrated on June 1. The commemorations now include honoring and remembering seafarers who died at or by the sea. That ceremony took place on Wednesday, and a memorial dinner was held in their honor at the Naval Club, with participation by officials and guests.

Two minor accidents with one woman injured

  June 1   In the first accident, a golf cart driven by a tourist hit a compact vehicle, causing minor damage; and in the second, a motorcycle skidded in colonia Caridad de Cobre, on the road to Garrafon.
       The golf cart belonged to the rental agency "Garrafon de Castilla" (Cart #9), and was traveling southbound on Rueda Medina near the runway, when it hit a silver Mitsubish and cracked the car's rear bumper. The two parties came to a settlement.
      The motorcycle was a silver Honda, and its driver was injured when she fell upon the pavement. She was taken to the hospital by the Red Cross ambulance. A video was made at the time showing she was fully aware of the situation.. (evidencia que ella estaba plenamente consciente de los hechos.)
   In other news, the SCT (Department of Communications & Transportation) advised caution for small boats due to winds of 20-30kph, causing waves of 1.2 to 1.8 meters (4-6 ft.). The port remained open for general navigation.
