Kosgoda Turtle Conservation
The Kosgoda Turtle Conservation Project is a sanctuary and rehabilitation centre aimed at protecting sea turtles that visit the shores of the island. Sea turtles have been listed as endangered species due to the constant threat they face, on sea and on land. The sanctuary facilitates a large hatchery, where sea turtle eggs are collected from nesting grounds and safely kept in their protected grounds, away from predators; both animal and human. In addition, adult turtles who have been injured or sick, are taken in and rehabilitated before being released back into the mighty blue ocean. Take a trip down to the Kosgoda Turtle Conservation Project for a chance to learn about these exotic species and how you can help save them.
