Turtles hatcheries are a fun experience, especially since you learn a lot and have a grand time. Here’s some more on Sri Lanka’s take on this!
Visiting the Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project is a must when you’re holidaying in one of the many luxury hotels in sri Lanka that line the coas. One such resort to consider is Saman Villas. The conservation has a great model for sustainablility and a very friendly owner. There are several locals and international volunteers that help out.
The release of the turtles that have hatched usually occurs during sunset every evening, where the staff pick the fit ones for release and are released at the closest beach. The project also collects and rescues eggs away from harm’s way. You’re sure to learn a lot about this project when you visit.
Other things to do
Once you’ve gotten up close and personal with turtles, it’s time to explore the area a little bit! There are plenty of beautiful beaches and restaurants here where you can refresh yourself.
