There are many amazing conservation efforts in the world today and there are some great efforts, right here in Xpu-ha, including the sea turtle hatchery program and the lion fish extermination efforts.
Many of our highly skilled instructors, lead groups on lion fish hunts. These venomous lion fish wreak ecological havoc upon the reef and if left unchecked, lion fish will cause the destruction of the reefs, native fish stocks and the livelihood of everyone who depends on fishing. This species is not indigenous to our Caribbean waters and actually have invaded, from the Indo-Pacific regions. These creatures are just as tasty, as they are poisonous, so you will find us enjoying meals of lion fish ceviche.
The sea turtle program is a very popular attraction and a vital part of these creatures continuing to thrive in our local waters. If you happen to be with us on the right evening, you may participate in the baby turtle release. It is an unforgettable experience and of great, conservation importance.
