In Nayarit's Riviera, there is a great need to protect the American crocodile "Acutus". Due to the destruction, pollution, invasion of their habitat by humans, exploiting their skin and flesh, this crocodile species is in danger of extinction. In 2010, a team of professional biologists and conservationists created a site where crocodiles could be relocated in a safe area for the species and humans. This sanctuary allows visitors and the general public to learn about crocodiles' behavior and how people can live in harmony with them. This year, volunteers are invited to help take care of the crocodiles and the sanctuary.
