Living Museum of the Sea Turtle ( Museo Vivo de la Tortuga Marina) – Mazunte, Oaxaca


The Living Museum of the Sea Turtle’s objectives are to create awareness about the Mexican Sea Tutrles that are in danger of extinction, and to look for a better way to make money off the sea turtles than killing them for their meat or stealing their eggs; which unfortunately has historically been the case. As with most environmental projects the key piece is to provide an alternative income to those who previously made money of the resource that you are trying to protect, In this case turtles. This is what the Living Museum of the Sea Turtle tries to do and so far they have been incredibly successful. The Living Museum of the Sea Turtle is part of the Mexican Turtle Centre which is dedicated to the study of marine Turtles. The museum has six species of marine turtles, six species of freshwater turtles and two species of tortoise. The Mexican Turtle Museum and consequently the Living Museum of the Sea Turtle are located on Mazunte beach near Puerto Ángel, which is about 5 and a half hours drive form Oaxaca City. If you are an animal lover this will definitely be the best museum that you have been to.
