Projeto Tamar, Praia do Forte

4.4
Dedicated to the protection of sea turtles along the Brazilian coast, Projeto Tamar is a conservation project that allows you to view several types of turtles and a couple of sharks. If you're interested in eco-tourism, this is must-see attraction. The organized grounds contain large tanks where you can view turtles in an environment that mimics their wild habitat. While this is an interesting attraction all year round, it is especially touching from October to March when you can watch the release of baby turtles into the wild. Plan my Praia do Forte trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Has many projects throughout the Brazil. Here you see pools with turtles, mini sharks and fish. If you're lucky you'll see the little turtles out towards the sea.

  • It's nice to see the turtles and other marine species that this place holds. But there is nothing spectacular. As the visit is charged, maybe a walk with 4 people stay a bit expensive and not compensate both.

  • I appreciate that this enterprise allows people access to and views of turtles and rays that would normally not be easily possible. However it does have the feel of a theme park. In addition having a touch pool for rays may be good for custom but not necessarily good for the Ray. In particular at busy times they looked stressed at constant attention. Turtles in relatively small pools seemed to be demonstrating typical 'pacing' back and forth ( in water of course) often seen in zoos with big cats. The money raised by entrance fee is likely very useful for protection and monitoring projects but not at cost to 'performing turtles'.
  • The place is wonderful, with a wide variety of turtles and even sharks(small and strange ones). Depending on the time and day you can even watch a small movie about the creatures of the deep sea, with a small surprise in the end. You won't regret it. You'll love it!
  • Highly recommend for families. Such great work they are doing to educate the population on sea turtles. Wonderful experience.
  • As tartarugas nadam desesperadas querendo sair, nao há muita informação sobre os cuidados com ela. Na verdade não há muita informação escrita no parque inteiro. They keep the turtles captive and there’s not information if they are being well treated. It’s just basic information is provided about this beautiful project, that seems to need more funds to improve.
  • O lugar é muito bonito e organizado. Tem uma lojinha para levar souvenirs com preços razoáveis. É possível conhecer as tartarugas marinhas e acompanhar o trabalho da equipe!
