Sea turtles

Focus on the wildlife : Sea turtles...

sea turtlesThe exploitation of sea turtles, since of the beginning of colonization, led them to the brink of extinction.
Since 1991, total protection of marine turtle is enforced, and quite well respected.

At sea, green turtles or hawksbill can be observed all year round while diving. They mainly favor rocky grounds, between 10 and 45 feet.

On land, it is sometimes possible to observe nesting marine turtles, on the beach where they faithfully come back every year.

In all cases, never disturb or touch sea turtles
