Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project Reviews & Ratings
Good place to get some knowledge about turtles. They are actively contributing to conserve sea turtles. As I remember Rs. 50 or 100 per local head and Rs. 10 or 20 for a school child.
Lovely place with a magnificent beach in the background. Turtle conservation is what gets you here and the beach does not let you leave. Must stop between Bentota and Galle along south west srilanakan coast
Quick visit to the turtle hatchery. Short but excellent 15 minute side trip. Turtles were in a tank that was a bit dirty and sad.
Good job. Saving turtles / animals is best the best thing.
Very small Sea turtle conservation area, probably famous because one of the first such conservation in Sri Lanka for the endangered sea turtles. They purchase turtle eggs from locals and hatch them in the area. They also have disabled turtles and turtles of different types and save them. The volunteers are mostly the foreign nationals who travel to the country and stay for sometime. The ticket costs around 500LKR for foreigners which is expensive for the place but one can visit the place when in and around bentota as there is not much to see other than beaches.
