  • We got a tour of one of the staff here. Beforehand I was somewhat skeptical and this has not been completely eliminated. It is a nice initiative to hatch the eggs in a safe place. The males remain in tanks for a few days to strengthen and are then expelled. The females (1 in the 100 eggs is a female) remain for a number of years to increase the chance of survival. They quickly express some babies in the hands of which you can wonder how good this is. Idem with adult specimens. You can find the passion of the guide that they are genuinely doing their best to give the Turtles a better future. With some more input/rules from the Government (animal welfare) I think it could be improved here. In addition, they have some sick/injured animals that they patch up and turn off again. A deformed turtle is no longer put out due to a small chance of survival. Question remains whether these animals can not better spend their last time in freedom instead of in a concrete container. All in all one of the better hatcheries in the area to visit. They are sincerely concerned about the welfare of the animals and have to do it with very limited income (tourism).

  • From the egg to the sea - here is explained in detail and clearly, baby turtles can be kept under supervision and carried from the sand to the water basin And in this station also turtles find their home, which due to injuries or disabilities (a Turtle is even blind) in the wild would have no chance All pools are very clean and it is handled very lovingly and respectfully with the turtles If we come to this area again at some point, we will visit the farm again The visit costs no admission - at the end a voluntary donation is requested
