  • This is the best Turtle project that I had ever went. They are really put efforts for protecting turtles. And they explained the project really well. THE Best place for visit. Highly recommend.
  • Very important effort to preserve Turtle population around SL. If the numbers( released from each hatch), related by the workers are true, need more support to encourage the place. Need national level publicity.
