WHEN IS THE NEXT TURTLE RELEASE?
We relocate sea turtle eggs from the beach to a central hatchery to protect the eggs and increase hatching rates.
The eggs take between 45-60 days to develop and hatch. This is a natural process and we can not predict when the eggs will hatch.
Once the turtles have hatched naturally during the evening, we will release to the sea the next day. We cannot predict the hatching dates, therefore we can not predict future release dates.
The team is busy working hands on with the turtles and patrolling the beach at night, we do not always have time to respond to each persons messages asking for release dates & times.
Once a nest has hatched we will post an update on our Facebook page to advise of the release date and time. We thank you for your patience and your interest in sea turtle conservation.
