Baby northern elephant seal and turtle both saved in Cabo

Date Published:

Two successful wildlife saves in Cabo in last few days – a baby northern elephant seal, and a turtle. Both are endangered species...

A baby northern elephant seal was successfully rescued, rehabilitated and re-integrated thanks to the combined efforts of PROFEPA and Cabo Dolphins and Ecology Department

The 18-month-old female was initially rescued by the Sea Mammal Care Network, after being found stranded on a beach.  She was in a poor state of health, and was about 40% underweight for a cub of her age.

However, after a good dose of TLC, Cora (as she was named) was restored to her full health and vigor. And reached a normal weight of 115kg before her release.

The baby elephant seal is an endangered species so the successful save of every individual animal is a big deal. 

Similarly, a green sea turtle, was also successfully released. The turtle was spotted on the beach in Loreto, in the illegal possession of two individuals.

Local police were alerted, arrested the individuals concerned, and enlisted PROFEPA to assess the turtle’s health.

After being given a clean bill of health, the turtle was released back into the waters around La Paz.

Lots of good work is being done locally in, and around, Cabo to protect turtles, sea lions, sea elephants, whales and so much more. There are also lots environmental and ecotourism companies here too.

If you are a nature lover, and want to be wowed by wildlife and a unique desert ecosystem, Cabo is a great place to come. Read all about Cabo wildlife here on

We look forward to seeing you down here soon.
