Introduction

En un principio el programa de conservación y manejo para una colonia de reproducción que anida en el noroeste de México en Playa de Las Cabras, en la costa sur de Sinaloa, adyacente al desarrollo turístico de CIP Playa Espíritu, sin algún trabajo de conservación previo. La Universidad Nacional Auntonoma de México, comenzó un programa conjunto de conservación e investigación en 2010 y en 2011 se iniciaron los primeros estudios de prospección, que determinaron que todos los nidos eran depredados, ya sea por la fauna silvestres y domésticos locales o saqueados por los seres humanos.

Encuestas realizadas en 2010-2011 indicaron que son cerca de 800 nidos por año. En 2012 iniciamos la reubicación de nidos a lugares protegidos y logrando 32,200 crías eclosionadas. Como una extensión del estudio, nuestro plan para 2013-2014 es comenzar el seguimiento del movimiento de hembras reproductoras durante el período de interanidación mediante rastreo satelital. Esto nos permitirá comprender mejor el verdadero alcance espacial de los agrupamientos de las especies y la frecuencia de anidación, los cuales sólo se han derivado de las encuestas de playa y programas de marcado de aleta limitado.

ENGLISH

At the begining the conservation and management program for a breeding colony that nests in Playa Las Cabras on Sinaloa coast in NW Mexico, adjacent to the tourist development of "CIP Playa Espiritu", with no previous conservation work. The "Universidad Nacional Auntonoma de México (UNAM)" began a collaborative conservation and research program in 2010 and in 2011 we began the first prospective studies, which determined that all nests were either predated by local feral and domestic fauna or poached by humans.

Surveys in 2010-2011 have indicated that there are about 800 nests per year. In 2012 we began relocating nests to protected sites and obtained 32,200 hatchlings. As an outreach of the study, our plan for 2013-2014 is to begin monitoring the breeding females movements during the internesting period using satellite tracking. This will allow us to better comprehend the true spatial extent of the nestings of the species and the nesting frequency, both of which have only been derived from beach surveys and limited flipper tagging programs.
