Following my recent note about the importance of the beaches on Northern Ambergris Caye for sea turtle nesting

There a plans to put up signs to alert people about nests and also block off Robles Point from vehicles (see photo of golf carts parked and people picnicing on this most important beach, often mistakenly called Rocky Point). Henry Brown is the biologist for the reserve. Please report observations of any turtle crawls so that they can document them and predict laying day as well as hatching date of species. #(+501)6254983. Messaging is better because of the cell phone service up there. It's sea turtle nesting season! So think twice before you drive and bbq on those beaches. Until the reserve staff have the funding to put up signs, barriers and do patrols, it's up to individuals to do their part in protecting these endangered species.
