Turtle Hatchery

Kosgoda is famous for its turtle hatchery. It was established in 1981 to protect Sri Lanka's turtles from extinction. The hatchery pays fishermen for eggs that they collect at night along the sandy beach. Visitors can see huge tanks filled with new born turtle hatchlings. After being fed, the baby turtles are taken to the sea and released when they are 2-4 days old, usually during the safer hours of darkness. Although October to April is the main laying season, some eggs can be found at Kosgoda throughout the year.

NOTE : Price varies from the starting point of the excursion and the number of pax present. Also the influence of dollar and euro fluctuation will affect.
