Projeto TAMAR Fernando de Noronha - Patrocínio PETROBRAS, Fernando de Noronha

Projeto TAMAR Fernando de Noronha - Patrocínio PETROBRAS will introduce you to the sea turtle, whose flippers and big eyes are sure to touch your heart. The project began as a research center that studied the behavior of the turtle, but along the way scientists uncovered significant damage from poachers and other habitat destruction. So, the project evolved into a program that preserves sea turtle habitats and educates visitors on habitat preservation. At the visitor’s center, you will see baby turtles propelling themselves through the water in manmade pools as they practice with their flippers. A guide from the center will teach you about the behavior of the sea turtle, which you'll observe in the shell-toting occupants that swim in the protected waters nearby. The habitat also doubles as an aquarium, sheltering shark species and other aquatic life that share the turtles natural habitat. A visit to Projeto TAMAR Fernando de Noronha - Patrocínio PETROBRAS represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Fernando de Noronha trip builder to plot your vacation.

  • We were in the Tamar project in Noronha in June 2017 to meet the preservation work and attend daily lectures (20 to 9:00 pm), which are very good. Are taught by researchers of the project including some like crowd of sharks, Fridays, on which is given by the curator of the Museum of the shark. There you can learn about the days and locations of the capture of turtles and spawning, to watch, is very interesting and he always gives a lot of people! There's a souvenis shop and the ICMBio where you can schedule the trails, take the tour guide with the map of the island and exchange your voucher for the access card to the Marine National Park. We went by bus, which stops right in front. Super quiet in the back too. A beautiful work of environmental education and preservation for both locals and tourists.

  • Simple site, with some illustrations and replicas of turtles and other marine species. What adds a lot are the explanations received from members of the project that are in place to meet with a lot of will and knowledge.

  • The Tamar project is just beautiful, what they do for the turtles is amazing. Every day's lectures of varied themes at 8:00 pm in the Auditorium. Friday is day of sharks and is great. Look for the boníssima people, Avinash. Be sure to stop by the shop, there's so much baby you want to bring everything. The seat of the Tamar is around praia do Boldro opposite the ICMBio, all receptive pass ahead and the buses also run every half an hour.

Where to stay in Fernando de Noronha

The bad news is that, if you're on a budget, your trip to Fernando de Noronha might be starting to look a whole lot more expensive than you'd planned. Accommodations on the remote archipelago are understandably expensive, as all food and supplies have to be specially shipped in. All lodgings are on the largest island, Fernando de Noronha, which is the only one permanently inhabited in the archipelago. The majority of options consist of guesthouses and boutique hotels concentrated in the center of Vila dos Remédios, the island's town. However, look a bit farther outside of town and you can find some excellent eco-resorts and beachside accommodations.
