ANOTHER ECO-EXPERIENCE: SEA TURTLES PROTECTION
On the beaches surrounding Dajuma, sea turtles are used to lay their eggs by burying them in the sand. Until the early 2000s, eggs were mostly destroyed by predators such as stray dogs, birds and …humans.
Today, the situation is very different: for the past 15 years, we are supporting a conservatory that has been set up a few kilometers from Dajuma. Yesterday’s turtle hunters have become guardians who carefully monitor gestation lasting on average 2 months.
On the picture, our young guest Clara together with Anggun, volunteer of the conservatory, is helping the newly born turtles to get out from the sand in a fully protected area. In a few minutes, the babies will be swimming in the sea!
