    Sightseeing | Release the Baby Turtle to Sea | Educational Program

    Sea turtles stand out as some of the most captivating creatures globally, with an evolutionary history dating back to the late Jurassic period. These remarkable beings find their habitat in both the sea and beach dunes. Matured female sea turtles undertake awe-inspiring migrations to lay their eggs on the beach. A typical clutch comprises 50 to 350 eggs, buried in circular holes 20cm to 40cm deep in the sand. After an incubation period of 50–60 days, baby sea turtles break free from their shells, navigate through the sand, and embark on their journey into the ocean. In Sri Lanka, extensive conservation efforts are in place to protect sea turtles from natural predators and human interference. The southwest coast, particularly Kosgoda, serves as a prominent home for various sea turtle species. Volunteering missions play a crucial role in these conservation projects sanctioned by the National Wildlife Conservation of Sri Lanka. Consider engaging in volunteering opportunities to contribute to the protection and preservation of these majestic creatures in diverse ways.
