The results are in for this edition of “Vallartenses Voice!"
After receiving some great feedback from the people of Puerto Vallarta, we understand the turtle release events much better and hope to educate others on this topic.
We originally asked the question because we were unsure how healthy it was to hold turtles in captivity while waiting to organize release parties, and if doing this for money or PR was something that should be supported.
When mixing tourism, education, environment, and wildlife into one event, you are bound to find some people who are seeking profit and PR over education . . .
