The exhibition is donation based. We had a nice experience here, learning more about the project from two friendly volunteers. Expect to spend about an hour here.

The operation has been ongoing for over a decade. It will be another 20 years before they see their first return hatchling. Watch for the red flashlights on that section of beach around 7:15 pm if you want to see a release.
