Working with wild turtles in Mexico
This weeks wildlife Wednesday comes from Crystal. Here’s what she has to say;
I’m Crystal, passionate baby goat cuddler and part-time adventurer, I can often be found doing headstands on the edges of cliffs, taking photos of abandoned buildings or sleeping on deserted islands with dangerous criminals. Now I just write, create, travel, repeat on ‘Castaway with Crystal’ I help YOU become a fearless traveller who grabs life by the big ol’ balls! Get excited about adventure, budget and eco-travel + dig my sweet photos & videos.
We caught up with Crystal about her time working with wild turtles in Mexico conservation beaches as well as swimming with them in the wild.
We’ve spoken briefly about your animal encounters while on the road, which have been your favourite to see in their natural environment and why?
Did you experience this encounter with a tour? What made you choose that particular company?
Had you seen them before in a zoo/sanctuary? How did it compare?
Animal tourism has become a big thing over the years. Have you had any experiences that looking back on, you feel weren’t very ethical, you perhaps wouldn’t do again or any that you wouldn’t recommend to other, what was it and why?
What advice would you give other travellers looking at working with wild turtles in Mexico?
Do you have any advice on being an ethical traveller?
