|PLAYA A UN LADO DEL MALECÓN - PUERTO VALLARTA|
By the time our dogs and I arrived on the beach next to the malecón, the "green patrol" had already arrived. A large, olive ridley sea turtle was making her slow, inclined journey back to the bay. Several romping dogs had disturbed the turtle. She was leaving the beach before having scooped out a sandy nest where she would have deposited dozens of eggs. The olive ridley vanished into a small, white-crested wave, but would return to the same spot. Sea turtles have been known to hold their eggs for as long as two years.
|POR ESTAR ASUSTADA POR UNOS PERROS, NO HIZO SU NIDO EN LA ARENA.|
After possible migrations of thousands of miles, females return to the place where they were hatched, where they mate and deposit their eggs. This fantastic navigation of oceans occurs due to the sea turtles´reliance on earth´s magnetic fields. This is the same way that migrating monarch butterflies are able to navigate through clouds.
REGRESÓ AL MAR, PERO VA A REGRESAR A ESTE LUGAR DONDE NACIÓ.
In the area of Banderas Bay, turtle nests are reported to ecology groups who arrive to dig up the eggs. They are counted and reburied in a secured beach corral with markers noting date eggs were deposited and how many. The eggs are now protected from dogs and humans. Approximately 45 days later at the time of hatching, the baby turtles are taken down to the edge of the bay and released. This happens in the evening, which saves many of them from birds, but not from fish.
Short video of the first sea turtle seen this year preparing its nest in Boca de Tomatlán. The 95 eggs were dug up and reburied in a safer location on the beach.

|STYROFOAM QUE ESTABA EN LA ORILLA DE PLAYA LOS MUERTOS. DESPUE´S DE LLEVARLO HASTA ARRIBA, ALGUIÉN LO TIRÓ EN EL DESAGUE DONDE Y LUEGO A LA BAHIA, EVENTUALMENTE EN PARTÍCULAS PEQUEÑAS QUE SON TÓXICAS.Y COMIDAS POR PEZES Y PÁJAROS.|
|EARLY MORNING NEAR THE PIER AT LOS MUERTOS BEACH. TEMPRANO EN LA MAÑANA- PLAYA LOS MUERTOS - CERCA DEL MUELLE|
Rains and summer vacationers always result in more trash in the bay. Last week-end, dolphins were swimming through a current that was carrying plastic bottles, bags and chunks of styrofoam out to the Pacific. There was even a floating television set in the bay, providing a tiny island of shade for fish. Scientific estimates are that in 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean, per weight, than fish.

Dogs are located in colonia floresta, calle rosa, next to the San Agustín farm. Please contact Maritza if you can help. The dogs need to be fed and fixed and if possible, adopted. email@example.com

Serendipity - I mentioned to an attractive, athletic-looking young man sitting next to his large and very beautiful male Husky that it was unusual to see purebred dogs at our clinics.

At the end of the clinic day, Dr. Anthony removed a large lump of fat from our dog Chook´s chest. It had been diagnosed a few days earlier by our vet as a possible tumor. Instead, it was only a glob of fat, which looked very different from the malignant tumor Dr. Pacheco removed from a dog´s chest at the clinic in Mascota the week before.

The clinic took place again in the government´s mobile unit, which isn´t very roomy or airy for three vets and a vet tech. The recovery table was set up under a tent next to the mobile unit.

Los animales no necesitan tener una camada para completar su ciclo vital, puesto que no existe una relación consciente con la reproducción como parte necesaria de su bienestar emocional.
