I am a Biologist by profession. I studied the biology of the leatherback turtle on Ventura Beach, Guerrero, in 2013 I carried out my undergraduate research with the topic: clutch size and hatching success in leatherback turtles, in 2021 I started with the master’s degree, we wrote an article focused on temperature and humidity in leatherback nests to estimate the sex ratio, in the field morphometric measurements are taken such as the Curved Carapace Length and Curved Carapace Width of the nesting females. In 2021, the marking of females began using metal plates and pits.

The UAEM supports by providing training to students on field work, in addition to being a link with the community. Since 2000, eleven scientific investigations have been carried out at the Los Quelonios camp at the bachelor’s and master’s level, all under the support of the person in charge of the camp, Ángel Salazar (R.I.P.).

The Eastern Pacific Leatherback Turtle Conservation Network started in 2012 when over thirty researchers, NGOs, and regional experts came together to develop an action plan to stabilize and restore the leatherback turtle population in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.
