Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery
Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery – Kosgoda ~
Isn’t life all about the little things that take up all your heart? Well, it definitely is, for the good folks at the Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery. Here’s a welfare center that genuinely cares about these little creatures, even before they’re born.
Today, six out of the seven species of sea turtles are endangered. And most of it is because of human exploitation of natural resources. Thankfully, this hatchery has taken the onus to protect them. They start with keeping an eye on the nesting mother turtles, bringing their eggs to the secure environment of the hatchery and finally releasing the baby turtles into the sea on the day of their birth. However, if there are complications, they tend to them and release them only once they’re fit to go into the vast ocean.
Kosgoda is the one of the very few hatcheries where all the five species in the country make their nests. They are the Olive Ridleys, Leatherbacks, Green Turtles, Loggerheads and Hawksbills.
Don't forget to ask our staff, if you could experience the rewarding feeling of releasing some of these delicate creatures to the ocean on your visit! The innocent souls come flapping back the first two-three times the wave hits them. But, after that they flap into their homes; the ocean, with so much joy, it fills up your heart too!
