Turtle hatchery of Koggala opened in the year 1996 on the fringes of Koggala town. It is a turtle farm which is a crucial breeding spot for the endangered sea turtles and also an care centre for crippled, blinded and wounded turtles.
This place is open for public visit and the money from the entrance fee is used in the breeding, feeding and treatment of the turtles. There is a giant turtle-shaped entrance, and upon entering, on the left, there is a mini pond under a shed. Here one can find several giant turtles swimming lazily in the water while the instructor lifts one of them and allows visitors to touch them. The turtles found here can weigh up to 15 kgs.
Visiting the Koggala Turtle Hatchery is more of an overwhelming experience rather than just a fun outing. The centre is protecting dying sea turtles with their limited resources and are putting their best foot forward to help secure the future of these beautiful animals.
