Annual Arts for Turtles Fundraiser in Nuevo Vallarta

You will be able to find items such as beachwear designs, metal art and sculpture, acrylic and water paintings, art cards, jewelry, “Tortuga” t-shirts and caps, turtle art calendars, turtle books for children and more.

There will also be a live and silent auction, a bake sale, a flea market and a raffle drawing.

Each year a special hand crafted quilt designed by Karen Guthrie is raffled off, along with other exciting items to bid on.

Great music and food are provided by the well known SeaHorse Restaurant at each event. You will be able to enjoy gourmet food and a special lunch at the SeaHorse Restaurant on the beach.

All proceeds from this annual fundraising event go towards saving the sea turtles of Banderas Bay.

AMA Mexico (Association for Environmental Unity in Mexico) is a Mexican non-profit organization devoted to the protection of the natural resources and ecology of Mexico’s Pacific Coast. The current focus is on the conservation of the endangered Olive Ridley Sea Turtle and its nesting habitat on the north shore of the Bay of Banderas in the State of Nayarit, just north of Puerto Vallarta.

Bahia del Sol Resort is located at Paseo Cocoteros and Retorno Cozumel in Nuevo Vallarta.

To volunteer, participate or for more information, contact Ann Carlos.

Bay of Banderas is rich in a wide variety of marine life, animal and birds, many of which are endangered and need protection. Many charity events, festivals (Birding festival 2014, 1st Festival For The Conservation Ballenarte In Puerto Vallarta), seminars and workshops   are conducted regularly to promote the cause of Vallarta's flora and fauna.
