The Sea Turtle Hatchery is situated in Habaraduwa, and was established in the year 1986, has successfully rescued and taken care of more than 1,000,000 sea turtles. If you are someone who loves everything about nature, make it a point to visit the Sea turtle hatchery which takes tremendous efforts to nurture the sea turtles in a safe environment before releasing them into the sea. Sri Lanka is a place which is favourable for sea turtles, where many sea turtles lay their eggs on the sandy beach and later go back to the water
Many sea turtles are in harm's way due to the activities of man, and this conservation centre has taken it upon them to conserve as many sea turtles as possible. The Sea turtle hatchery acts as a day-care centre to nurture the baby sea turtles before releasing them into the sea and also takes care of the injured sea turtles, nursing them back to normalcy.
