On March 10, 2022, we welcomed the UPTOS-Clodosbaldo Russián Applied Geochemistry Research Group from Cumaná, Sucre state, allies of La Tortuga Foundation. These professionals have been developing scientific research on the content of plastic garbage and microplastics on beaches in the state of Sucre since 2018, being one of the pioneers in developing studies on this subject in the country.

RAO Anzoátegui, the research, and education project with sea turtles of La Tortuga Foundation participated in the last two Environmental Congresses held in the country, showing the results of three years of continuous work.
Fundación La Tortuga had a wonderful visit with Provita's friends in the Macanao Peninsula and its Margarita Parakeet Conservation Project. This successful work has been carried out on Margarita Island since 1989, where the community has made important contributions to the protection of these species both nationally and internationally.
With the global environmental crisis we are experiencing, in La Tortuga Island it is intended, "apparently" without the necessary environmental impact studies, to exploit, as soon as possible, "ecotourism and sustainably", the pristine natural and scenic resources of the island and its keys, namely: marine and underwater habitats, lagoons, and salt flats, archaeological and paleoanthropological sites, endemic terrestrial and aquatic biota.
"Before initiating any tourism project in La Tortuga, it is necessary to restore the sector environmentally devastated in 2007."
