Join Positive Legacy at Xcacel with Flora, Fauna y Cultura for a day of ecological conservation and service! The beautiful beach Xcacel is a sea turtle sanctuary and educational center working to protect, research and conserve the habitat of sea turtles nesting on the coasts of Quintana Roo. Sea turtles demonstrate the ultimate lesson of ecology: that everything is connected. Sea turtles are part of two vital ecosystems, beaches and marine systems. If sea turtles become extinct, both the marine and beach ecosystems will be impacted.
We are excited to work with Flora, Fauna y Cultura to support their mission: to improve the quality of life in the region by promoting ecological value and conservation of the natural and cultural heritage of Mexico. Their projects throughout the local community and green areas nurture a vision of a world in which natural and cultural heritage are valued, respected, shared and used to benefit all. Their program for sea turtle conservation covers 13 nesting beaches which cover 120 km of protected area, making it the largest program of its kind in Mexico.
During our day of service, we will spend the morning working to revitalize the natural ecosystem by removing invasive plants, painting and installing signs for the turtle nesting areas, and cleaning up the beach. After completing the mornings projects, we will relax to the rhythms from local musicians while we eat an authentic Mexican lunch. Then, its free time for the rest of the afternoon! Enjoy swimming in the beautiful Caribbean sea and soaking up the sun before heading back to the resort to enjoy another evening of music
