Projeto Tamar Guriri, Sao Mateus

#3 of 6 in Zoos & Aquariums in State of Espirito Santo
Started in 1988, Projeto Tamar Guriri monitors 53 kilometers (33 mi) of preserved coastline on the island of Guriri, and protects an endangered population of sea turtles nesting there. These turtle-friendly beaches are noted for small natural pools forming at low tide. You can time your visit to the island for the annual hatching of turtle eggs, which has become a major attraction for ecotourists in recent years. Tamar Project staff members are present for this event, and can provide you with educational insight into the world of these rare sea creatures. The project also maintains several enclosed tanks and a large aquarium, designed to allow scientist and visitors a chance to observe the turtles without disturbing them.
