Campamento Tortuguero Playa Hermosa Amigos del Mar Acapulco.
Sea turtles have been threatened by different predators, especially humans. Those who have used turtle eggs for consumption have put sea turtles in danger of extinction. At the Tortuguero Playa Hermosa Amigos de Mar Camp, we teach all about how we collect, protect, and later release baby turtles into the sea. In addition to the nesting area, Campamento Tortuguero has rabbits, ducks, freshwater turtles, parakeets, chickens, and guinea pigs. Please consider visiting the camp yourself and making a donation to Campamento Tortuguero if you feel called to directly support their efforts!
Kids Camp Anarchapulco believes in providing a safe space for everyone involved. It is our goal to maintain a positive atmosphere, impress parents, and ultimately for the campers to enjoy themselves.
Thank you for supporting our initiative to make Anarchapulco more exciting for the whole family!
