Visiting the sea turtles facility

At around 5 pm on Saturday afternoon we visiting the place where they do
sea turtle research. This was started by scientist and researcher
Antonio "Toño" Resendiz (*) which happens to be the owner of Camp
Archelon (where we are staying). He gaves us a brief history of the
place and the research projects on turtles that he had done.

(*) Antonio Resendiz, a Mexican conservationalist, used to tend the sea
turtle facility on north of town (Bahia de Los Angeles). Volunteers
helped Resendiz care for several endangered species of sea turtles.
Though visits are usually planned though organization in the US,
enthusiast might inquire locally for a change to see the facility (from
"Sea Kayaking in Baja" book)
