Turtle season is here!

With the start of the nesting season we have started the turtle walk. Marine biologist, local patrollers, police and guests come together every night at 9pm for a 10min briefing on the turtles and then a 40min/1hour walk around the island hoping to find a nesting green or hawksbill turtle! If the turtle nests the eggs are relocated to the hatchery to prevent them from being poached it is a key activity in protecting turtle species from becoming extinct. We are hopping to find our first turtle soon and we will update with pictures
