Turtle hatchery

There are five varieties of turtles can be seen in down south of Sri Lanka. It is one of great work to protect this endangered animal. Koggala, Habaraduwa, Weligama are famous places for laying eggs. In turtle hatcheries transplanted eggs are hatched and the baby turtles are then released into the sea.

The turtle conservation established an “in situ” protection: where the eggs are laid by the female turtle, the conservation centres can collect the endangered ones, ensure a safe place to hatchle, after allows the hatchlings to scramble down to the ocean immediately after they emerge from their egg.

Guests can attend volunteer basis for conservation process too. Release the baby turtles to the ocean is a truly amazing thing.
