Conservation: Green Turtles on Praslin

Green Turtle Seychelles

A Green Turtle has laid eggs on Grande Anse Kerlan beach (near Constance Lemuria Resort)

The green turtles nest all year round in Seychelles, but specially from June to September.

One female green turtle recently laid eggs on Grande Anse Kerlan for the second time. 135 eggs were rescued by Lemuria’s Turtle Manager and Landscape Manager, Robert and Adrian. 

The large prints made on the sand by the turtle allowed Adrian to identify the species, a green turtle being larger than a Hawksbill turtle.
