August turtle season


This month has been really busy at the hatchery, we are patrolling every evening with our lovely guests, some have been very lucky and had turtles nesting outside their beach villas! Also this week, lots of baby turtles have been born, 3 nests in the last 3 days, yesterday was a Hawksbill turtle nest which hatched late afternoon, most of our guests were able to come and watch their release to the sea, then in the evening another Green Turtle nest was born and also released!

 Watching the baby hawksbill turtles digging their way upwards out of the sand

Making their way down to the sea with our guests watching.

All gone!
