Scandi Sea Turtles Project

scandi divers  resort puerto galera sea turtle

On the night of August 11 a mother green sea turtle came ashore and laid 135 of her eggs next to Scandi Divers front steps. The eggs will hatch after about two months, when the baby turtles will dig themselves out and return to the sea.

We undertook to transfer the eggs to a higher area down the beach at Cataquis Lodge, away from the danger of storm waves. The green sea turtle is an endangered species so we will closely monitor the hatching to ensure all the baby turtles make it safely to the ocean.

Green turtles almost always nest on the same beach used by their mothers, so we wish them all the best and hope to see this family of turtles returning for years to come.
