2017 Turtle Protection Season

2017 Turtle Protection Season

Once again we are getting busy as the first turtles arrived on our beach to lay their eggs. Officially the protection program and turtle season starts on the first of May, but so far we have received “only” 12 Green Sea Turtles that deposited 1280 eggs. We expect much more movement over the next two weeks and hopefully have another successful season with these beautiful creatures.

For now we have placed the first eggs in a temporary protection space and by next week the construction of our corral should be finished to accommodate about 400 nests.
As in the previous year we have published an “inventory” of all the turtles in the protection corral that can be found under the following link:

The Protection Corral is ready for action!
