The mission of the Tecolutla Turtle Preservation Project is to support the protection and conservation of marine turtles, particularly Kemp’s ridley sea turtles in Tecolutla, Veracruz, Mexico.
We provide financial support to Vida Milenaria, a grassroots preservation effort in Tecolutla, Mexico that has helped protect hundreds of thousands of Kemp's ridley sea turtle nests in the past 35 years. The founder of this effort, Fernando Manzano, is featured in the documentary Papa Tortuga , which has aired on Public Television as part of the Natural Heroes series. The documentary has also been featured in a number of film festivals throughout the United States.
