In short a wonderful experience. They patiently answered all our questions and explained the steps they take to preserve the eggs and turtles. This was followed by a truly heart warming experience of releasing baby turtles into the sea. We were each given about 15 turtles to release.

The project conserves all possible species of turtles but majorly the Green and Olive Ridley turtles were present during our visit. We were blessed to see the hatching of eggs and release the young ones into the sea by hand.

Je suis venu pour visiter ce petit sanctuaire de tortue avec ma copine , je paye l’entrée 1000 roupies par personne , à la fin de la visite je met 5000 roupies dans une petite boîte pour pouvoir protéger les tortues .
Le propriétaire arrive avec sa grosse voiture et son look très riche par rapport aux locaux et m’explique qu’ils ont eu un gros arrivage de tortues et qu’ils ont besoin d’aide pour les relâcher pendant la soirée .( j’étais très content ) .
Je reviens le soir même pour pouvoir les aider et la on m’annonce qu’il faut payer 5000roupies par personne par sceau de 10tortues . J’ai tout de suite compris qu’il y avait un but commercial derrière cette réserve et que l’étiquette de gros pigeon était écrite sur mon front . A savoir que j’avais préparé 15000roupies dans ma poche pour leur donner à la fin .

Volunteering

I had originally booked two weeks volunteering with the project but I enjoyed my self so much that I stayed for an additional week. And I could really stay forever. Dudley and his family make the experience. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they would all go above and beyond to ensure each volunteer has everything they need.

As an Animal Science in the UK I wanted to see first hand conservation work and feel part of making a difference. I feel like I have achieved this. Not only have I buried eggs and released hundreds of babies whilst volunteering at the sanctuary , I have also spent a lot of time giving tours which has not only improved my knowledge on Sea Turtles but also means I have spoken to lots of people about the importance of conserving these amazing wild animals.

The main message of the project is conservation and sustaining and improving wild populations. By educating the public, carrying out beach cleans, burying eggs so that they can hatch safely. And releasing babies, means the project is making a big difference to wild population numbers.

Accommodation

Staying at the project really felt like a home away from home. The accommodation is clean with air con, Wifi and lovely social area and garden. The food was traditional Sri Lankan meals, which I will be cooking when I get home, which included breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The trip was my first adventure alone and meant I was very anxious at being in a new place. I definitely didn't need to be as anxious as I was! And I really do feel like part of the family and will be returning at any chance I can. The staff were friendly and so helpful and it has ben so enjoyable meeting and working with different people.

Meeting the other volunteers has also been a great experience and i have also made a best friend for life. Along with lots of other friends. And I am so grateful to have shared this life changing experience with them, where i have made unforgettable memories.

I will miss the entire family so much. And i am already looking forward to returning. Dudley and his family are doing wonderful things, not only in the sanctuary and the wild population numbers but also to the volunteers they welcome in. The family really do make the experience. Along with providing the chance to play a big part in the conservation of endangered Sea Turtles.

I volunteered at this project for a month and it was the best experience!

I was travelling alone in Sri Lanka but immediately Dudley and his family made me feel so welcome at the project and I settled in straight away. I felt so cared for, the food was incredible and it is a lovely living environment for volunteers.

The volunteer house was clean, very close to the sanctuary and felt very homely! Beds were comfortable and I slept very well.

As a volunteer we also participated in regular beach cleans which was great as it felt good to actively take care of where the mother turtles were coming and laying their eggs, making a difference in their safety and conservation of their environment.

As a visitor, you get to see how well the turtles are cared for, whether they are older rescues or baby turtles that have hatched and will be released back into the wild. I would definitely recommend booking to release baby turtles which was very popular for tourists and is such an amazing experience as it is done in the evening and the sunsets are incredibly beautiful!

Thank you all so much for making my time here so amazing! I enjoyed every second and will definitely be returning.

Dieses Projekt sollte unbedingt unterstützt werden. Ein Stopp zum Beispiel wie bei uns auf dem Rückweg zum Flughafen. Wenig kommerziell ausgerichtet kämpft Fernando Santha für die Schildkröten und kann bei einem kleinen Rundgang über seine Anstrengungen und Erfahrungen berichten (auch auf Deutsch). Ja, natürlich entsprechen die Haltungsbedingungen nicht unseren europäischen Standards. Aber, wir sind auf Sri Lanka, ein Land gebeutelt vom Tsunami, der Corona-Krise und mehr, das sollte man nicht vergessen. Besser hier die Aufzucht beobachten als am Strand von Hikkaduwa den alten/großen Schildkröten auf den "Leib" rücken, wie manche Touristen, die ihre Kinder auf die Schildkröten setzen…Wir hatten uns vorab per WhatsApp angemeldet. Der Eintritt kostet 1000 Rupien pro Person. Wir haben natürlich ein paar Dollar am Ende zusätzlich gespendet. Danke Fernando!

Le manager de la réserve de tortue nous a expliqué qu’il a créé celle-ci en 1988.

Son engouement pour la protection des tortues lui est venue, lorsqu’il a aperçu un matin des pêcheurs en train de récolter des œufs de tortues pour les revendre à des restaurants asiatiques. ( pratique qui perdure dans le pays)

Il décida donc de racheter ses œufs afin de les enterrer dans le sable, les surveiller durant la couvée puis les remettre à la mer lors de l’éclosion…

Toute l’équipe nous a surpris par son implication, son professionnalisme, sa simplicité, son expertise et sa disponibilité à impliquer les visiteurs dans la préservation des tortues et le projet mené par l’association.

Nous avons pu voir une éclosion d’œufs mais aussi admirer les bébés tortues retourner à la mer.

Bravo bravo bravo

Eine großartige Gelegenheit, die Arbeit der Station und deren täglichen Kampf um das Überleben dieser wundervollen Tiere hautnah zu erleben. Die Führung durch die Station ist unbedingt zu empfehlen!!

This sea turtle conservation centre is doing great things to ensure that the injured and resued turtles live out their lives as comfortably as possible. The actual centre looks a bit rundown but it's all run on charity donations from visitors and I honestly believe that the people working there love the turtles immensely.
It's worth a visit to fall in love with the guests that are lucky enough to be rescued and cared for in this place.
Then there's the little newly hatched turtles that are adorable too.
Altogether a lovely experience and definitely worth a visit to experience these majestic beauties. Any donations are helping to keep this project on track and ensuring there is help at hand for any needy guests...

Sea Turtles are one of threatened species of the world. Southern costal line is a common place for laying eggs by sea turtles. Victor Hasselblad sea turtle conservation place is the first most sea turtle conservation place in Sri Lanka started in 1978.
It is a good place to experience hatchlings and sea turtles.
