  • The sea turtle Association has a great approach to achieve the breeding and conservation of sea turtles. The small turtles are released after three days in the sea, anyone can touch also.

The Association is looking for more volunteers and workers who charge after Sri Lanka standard will receive meals and help to save the turtles.
