With more than 40 years of experience in that area, he told Reaction Informatica that these federal agencies do not give the seriousness that deserves the deaths of the chelonian and that they are only limited to lifting them and burying them in the same beach area.

“Neither Semarnat nor Profepa do anything to investigate the causes, nor do they intervene in necropsies, nothing! Rescuers just bury them. There are several cases of this as evidence, ”he said.

Enciso Saracco said he also said that the Marine Mammal Strand Care Network exists in the State of Sinaloa and that Profepa is responsible for promoting and promoting, but it does not work as it should.

“I have not been part of it for a long time, because it does not work as it should be, now I do not touch the turtles, wolves or cetaceans, as I did before, but I am pending because everything is reported to me,” he said.
