Visit Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project for an educational and insightful tour of the turtle sanctuary and preservation project. This program, which started in 1988, aims to conserve local nesting sites, which are endangered by humans and predators, as well as monitoring the diminishing sea turtle activity in the area. The sanctuary has a large hatchery for rescued and collected eggs. After taking a tour and learning about all of the different species found in the area, you can take part in releasing the turtles into the ocean. The program relies solely on fundraising and donations, so if you choose to take part in the turtle release, you'll usually be asked to pay a small fee.

  • I generally had a good experience at the Kosgoda Turtle Center. Our guide was really committed and he really seemed to have a passion for the Turtles! The conditions for the turtles could be more stimulating, but it is also a third world country and therefore the resources are small. But I think the center helps to increase the turtle's chance of survival. However, I would not recommend that you keep the turtles as it can stress them as well as transfer the bacteria to them

  • Good place to get some knowledge about turtles. There are actively contributing to conserve sea turtles. As I remember Rs. 50 or 100 per local head and Rs. 10 or 20 for a school child.
  • Quick visit to the turtle hatchery. Short but excellent 15 minute side trip. Turtles were in a tank that was a bit dirty and sad.
