Little bit about Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery
This is one of the turtle hatcheries found near the southern coast of Sri Lanka. At this place, you will find all kinds of turtles living in Sri Lanka. This center is used as a hatchery that helps to increase the rate of hatching as well as the survival of the baby turtles, especially of the turtles near extinct. This center is also responsible for taking care of sick and injured turtles especially adults, by giving them the possible care and releasing them back to the ocean. At this place, there are around 10 tanks filled with turtles, either new hatchlings waiting their turn to be released or older ones who are unable to live in the big bad sea themselves and have been rescued.
