Project Review

The main aim of this project is to assist Sea Turtles to naturally come ashore, nest and return to the sea safely while recording their numbers and marking the nesting sites. We also work on protecting these sites from poachers (humans or preditors seeking the eggs), while they naturally incubate and ensure the safe transit of the incubated young ones to the sea to ensure maximum survival.
