INCUBATION NURSERY


VIVERO DE INCUBACIÓN:  At the northern end of the malecón on the beach next to a busy open-air restaurant and the adjacent, good fish market, is an "incubation nursery." Inside this oversize cage-like, locked "corral" are a few thousand Olive Ridley ("Tortuga Golfina") turtle eggs.  The original sandy nests on beaches north and south of this location were reported to 911, attention "green patrol" ("patrulla verde"). Nests are dug up by authorized personnel as soon as possible after the female crawls slowly back into the bay.  The removal of eggs is to protect nests from humans and dogs. Eggs in each nest are carefully counted and transported to the nursery for reburying. 

Above each nest is a white marker noting when eggs were laid, how many, and estimated date of hatching.  Average number of eggs per nest - 100.  Incubation period is approximately 6 weeks, at which time hatchlings will be released at dusk, reducing chances of being eaten by seabirds.  Fish learn to anticipate, so release location changes whenever possible. If you check birth days on the markers at the nursery, you might consider a visit on that date.

Turtle gender is determined after fertilization and dependent on temperature of incubation.  If turtle eggs incubate below 81.86, the hatchlings will be male. If above 87.8, hatchlings will be female. If temperatures fluctuate between those two temperatures, it should produce an almost even mix of sexes.  Ninety percent of hatchlings will not survive predators.  Only 1% of the sea turtles will reach sexual maturity.  Owing to the wonder of earth´s magnetic field, females will return to the place where they were hatched.  Males will never touch land again. 


The Olive Ridley sea turtle is at risk for extinction.  Enemies are sharks, pollution, global warming,  and humans.  On our regular panga outings, we have seen several dead Olive Ridleys with deep gashes in their shells, all caused by boats. 


RAIN!  After a mostly rain-free June, always the beginning of the rainy season, Vallarta has enjoyed five or six torrential rains in July,
accompanied by the always thrilling rumbling and booming of thunder and brilliant bursts of lightning.  The air is refreshed, temperatures are lower and the foothills of the Sierra Madres are green and glorious again.

LA FLORESTA ("The Forest") - A 25-minute drive southeast from centro to a quiet, cobbled neighborhood with several grassy, unkempt parks.  No forest.  The clinic took place in the very large bodega of Jurgen Payr, originally from Munich, Germany.  As the location is a bit hidden, it was difficult for several people to find.

After registering the first arrivals Wednesday morning, two volunteers and I drove around looking for cats and dogs,  with some success.  When we asked a young teen-age girl standing in the doorway of her home if she had a cat of a dog she would like to have sterilized for free, she replied that she didn´t own a cat or a dog, but she did have a duck.
