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
