Although the coronavirus pandemic has lasted several months in Mexico and the world, not all about it has been bad news. Thanks to the fact that beaches have fewer visitors, thousands of Olive Ridley turtles have hatched in Sonora.

On Desemboque beach, where about 500 turtles are born in normal years, unique conditions were created for turtles hatching. It began with 2,289 Lepidochelys Olivacea turtles, an endangered species in Mexico.

The Seri community organized a release of 720 turtles in which Rubén Albarrán, vocalist of Mexican musical band Café Tacvba, participated recognizing the efforts made by this community to preserve the species.
