Definitely the highlight of the trip for me (getting engaged comes in at a close second @tjearles 😉). We spent a couple nights at La Tortuga Verde, a hostel in El Salvador that among being eco-sustainable and a pelican rehabilitation centre, is also a sea turtle sanctuary. They rescue the eggs from poachers and once they hatch, they get released back into the ocean. Getting to take part in a sunset release was the coolest experience. 🐢❤️ #latortugaverde

Such a shame we couldn't cross the border and ended up in a place like this instead... #hammockfeels #imnevercominghome #elcuco #elsalvador #latortugaverde

Nothing says "Central America" quite like bright bags of sugary juice. Here we have piña and chia 😍😍 #juice #fruit

Found a special kind of paradise; "La Tortuga Verde", one of the most talked about resorts in Central America and we can see why! Completely unique in El Salvedor, as El Salvedor is not on the tourist radar yet this place is left untainted by tourists, raw, ocean front, organic beauty. Still it has all the things people love out of a resort: free yoga classes, turtle egg release, hundreds of hammocks, a walk to incredible surf, incredible food, pools overlooking the ocean, and the friendliest owner and local workers ❤️❤️❤️ ~Chantelle #latortugaverde #minimalistvagabonds @chantellekinzel

Life is beautiful when you dare to dream.
I'm now a paid volunteer coordinator, turtle conservationist, English/Spanish tutor and possibly a salsa teacher @ La Tortuga Verde in the country I was born! This pic sums up my beach life; releasing a baby turtle at Sunset teaching guests the importance to the survival of this beautiful marine mammal, what a life!
Thanks me 💚

My first public release of a baby turtle, what a feeling!
This little guy was born in El Cuco, a beach along the Pacific Ocean of Central America. I've come to La Tortuga Verde to learn about marine conservation and better understand the conflicts between people and animals that impact the population of turtle species and consequently making all 7 species critically endangered here in El Salvador.

Here's why: culturally and historically the people of this land enjoy a special typical dish called Turtle Soup and use other parts in cosmetics and jewellery. Oblivious to the issue of dramatic decline in numbers, Salvadorians traditionally patrol beaches in search of turtle nests. In 2008 El Salvador banned the use or sale of turtle eggs however despite their efforts, communities continue to unsustainably harvest adult turtles and their eggs.
Historically education is the missing piece of the puzzle, unknowingly understanding the critical path to the survival of the species and importance to our biodiversity.

Turtle release in public beaches is a key conservation solution, participation of families and in particular children can change the perception of turtle consumption in households and how communities see turtles today, as living beings. Seeing these babies run to the beach and highlighting key facts on the little chance of survival these guys already have can create an emotional alignment and change!
