    We arrived at 8 pm at the Turtle Conservation Project. We were, however, not the only one, there were 100 other tourists. A guide yelled in poor English that we all needed to do. We went in groups of 35 at a turtle that was digging a hole. Some tourists had their Flash is not turned off. .. I thought it was impressive to see such a large turtle, but I got a feeling of all those people to that poor animal. We are therefore rather left. The money that is earned with the tickets they use for the Conservation Project, that's the only consolation for the poor turtle.
