Name the Sea Turtle

By in Community News with 1 Comment

Pedregal de Cabo San Lucas’ Developer has decided to contribute to the efforts of the Organization for Sustainability and Environmental Conservation, AC (SyCOMA Organization) for studying and conserving sea turtles with technology that will allow tracking satellites to monitor the life of an adult turtle. The data obtained from this information will serve to deepen the knowledge of this species and to help establish standards and objectives that promote conservation and the environment around them.

We want everybody to be part of this project and are happy to announce the following contest to name the Sea Turtle that is about to be studied:
