VIDEOS: Endangered animals reappear on empty beaches of Cancun and the Riviera Maya

The disappearance of humans due to the restrictions against the covid-19, causes the return of nature.

Endangered animals such as a jaguar, a leatherback turtle, hocofaisanes and crocodiles have been sighted in Cancun and the Riviera Maya, in the Mexican Caribbean, which, due to social contact restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, have been left empty of people

The secretary of environment and ecology of the state government of Quintana Roo, reported on the sighting of a jaguar in public areas of the Sirenis hotel in Tulum, as well as a leatherback turtle that spawned in the Cancun hotel zone.

A huge crocodile was sighted in the canals of plaza la Isla and three specimens of hocofaisán in Kabah park, he said in a telephone interview with the Efe agency.

Arellano pointed out that many animals have recovered spaces during the Coronavirus quarantine but that cases such as the leatherback turtle that came to spawn in the Cancun hotel zone are striking. According to the Ecology municipal directorate, the leatherback turtle, 2.15 meters long and 1.4 wide, laid 112 eggs in front of the beach of the Grand Oasis hotel, in the Cancun hotel zone.

The official explained that one of the characteristics of animal species that are in danger of extinction and that inhabit natural environments is that they are more timid by nature and do not like human contact.
