“Thanks for saving us!!”

“Thanks for saving us!!”

The last nest of this year’s sea turtle successfully hatched at Bijadi Hatchery.

This morning(30th March) the last nest relocated in this nesting season hatched and we could see lot of baby turtles tracks heading towards the sea. Beginning of the season was challenging for the sea turtle project because some nests failed completely/partially because of early nesting and heavy rainfall between end of September and mid October.
This year our dedicated team of 6 long term volunteers (Marie, Katherina, Stephanie, Tobias, Yasmine and Naho) along with 21 work campers and 12 local contact persons worked very hard to make every fishermen families aware of the sea turtle conservation and importance of Sea turtles for the Eco system.
Thanks to all the active participants….
