Marine Sea Turtle Conservation Program

Established in 1963 Marine Sea Turtle is one of the oldest hatchries in Sri Lanka. During our time we have been responsible for protecting countless turtle nests, and we continue to educate and work with local fishing communities to conserve marine sea turtle populations.

We have recently expanded our conservation efforts by collaborating with the Olive Ridley Project, collecting scientific data on fishing nets used to help prevent their detrimental effects on our marine ecosystem.

Marine sea Turtle was established in 1963 and continues to be very much at the forefront of turtle conservation. Situated 73 km from Colombo in the heart of Kosgoda, surrounded by some of the most beautiful beaches in Sri Lanka, makes this the perfect location to immerse yourself in turtle conservation.

Your work and research will vary depending on the needs of the program, the work can be physically demanding and we encourage everybody to participate to get the most out of the experience. We encourage you to collect data during nesting events and we are more than happy to show you what information we need to contribute to turtle research and conservation.

Daily tasks include general maintenance of the hatchery, health checks of turtles, feeding and beach patrols, witnessing a mother laying eggs in the wild is truly life changing. Community work is also a large part of what we do and we collect more data on fishing practices used and educate the children on marine conservation.
