Projeto Tamar Guriri, Sao Mateus

(4.3/5 based on 100 reviews on the web)
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. See Projeto Tamar Guriri and all Sao Mateus has to offer by arranging your trip with our Sao Mateus trip generator.

  • A great example of citizenship, knowledge and preservation of nature. Nice work! Great for kids of all ages, from 1 to 80 years! A lesson in environmental education. Learn all about the turtles! If you're lucky, will have the chance to see the turtles be forwarded back to the sea, it's exciting!

  • The site was closed and had a notice on the gate. From the outside it looked like he was inactive for some time. Sorry, environmental education in these locations is very important.

  • Knowledge and preservation space, a good program for everyone, especially for children. Environmental education moment in which it is possible to understand the importance of preserving wildlife and meet turtles of various types. Note: I have visited a few years ago, 2 times, but on the field "When you visit" you can only select dates after November 2015.
