The turtles of Kosgoda

Every month on the brightest nights, when the moon looms full, turtles come ashore to lay their eggs along the island’s Southern shores; a ritual that’s undoubtedly transpired for centuries. However over the years their numbers have declined and this compels the conservation of these magnificent, ancient, creatures and the fragile ecosystems that sustain them. Our excursion takes you to one such turtle conservancy, where you can see Green, Loggerhead, Hawksbill and Olive Ridley turtles. See the turtle’s hatch, with the opportunity to observe the fledglings as they crawl out of their shells. Come sundown, you can even help some of the hatchlings into the water, improving their chances of survival. The day’s excitement will conclude with a seafood BBQ dinner.
