Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project Tours

Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project
The Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project is a small venue in Kosgoda that’s run by volunteers and relies on donations to help protect Sri Lanka’s turtles from extinction.

The central aim of the project is to monitor local sea turtle activity and to conserve the local nesting sites. A crucial element is the hatchery, where rescued eggs can hatch safely, away from the clutches of potential predators (or poachers) before being released into the ocean at night. In addition, a selection from each hatching are kept at the sanctuary for a short period for 'headstarting' before their release.

Another of the project’s aims is to increase public awareness of how endangered the creatures are and just how important it is to help protect them as a species. Volunteers are on hand to show guests around the various tanks to see (but not touch) the different types of turtles. These volunteers are generally well-informed and encourage visitors to ask questions and find out more about the project.

Practical Info

The site of the Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project is situated on the main Galle Road connecting Colombo to Galle. The Kosgoda Railway Station is also only a few kilometers away.
Address: 13A Galle Road, Kosgoda 80570, Sri Lanka

Day Tour with Turtles and Boat Safari at Benthota River

A good day activity for the travelers stay in Colombo, Galle or in between. Our chauffeur will pick you from your convenient location as per the schedule given.You will be able to see hundreds of turtles at the hatchery.

Then they find their way to the surface, and to the ocean, after which they start a life filled with many dangers, where only a few will make it through the growing years. Releasing baby turtles is a very unique experience. And there is nothing like holding a baby turtle in your hand. River cruise could include a visit to a Mangrove Lagoon, . Crocodiles are rare now but there are plenty of water monitors and river birds. It is delightfully relaxing to cruise along the river, detached from the rest of Sri Lanka, wallowing in one’s own -wonder at the magnificence of the riverine scenery.You can have a wonderful trip
