Public Excavation today at 5.30 PM!

Hello everyone,

We have another excavation for you at half past five today. Meet at the Goatshed in Alagadi and our volunteers will take you down to the nest site on the beach.

Now that laying season is pretty much over, we are not taking any more advance bookings to see the laying females at night. Each morning we collect up hatchlings from hatched nests that didn't make it out in order to boost the numbers that make it into the sea to combat other pressures on the population such as conflict with fisheries. We release these hatchlings and any from the public excavation after dark so they have a higher chance of surviving predation. If you would like to join us on a hatchling release then please call the Goatshed on +90 0533 8798533 around 12pm to see if we have hatchlings that day.
