Plan a trip now to Dominica to participate in the annual sea turtle hatch, a popular island activity between March and August, and support sea turtle conservation. Experience adventure on land, fantastic diving, and help save sea turtles all in one great trip..!
Hawksbill, Leatherback and Green turtles have been seen on Rosalie Bay Beach, Londonderry Beach and Bout Sabe Beach in LaPlaine. The island anxiously awaits the arrival of the first female sea turtle to swim ashore to dig her nest and lay her eggs. After a gestation period of 8-10 weeks, the hatchlings emerge from the nest before finding their way back to the sea.
Under the watchful eye of the Dominica Sea Turtle Conservation Organization, visitors to the island can be added to the “turtle alert” list to stay updated on the nighttime arrival of turtles. The sea turtle hatch offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime experience for those who brave this nocturnal challenge! A representative of the Nature Enhancement Team (NET) ensures that spectators follow the rules for interacting with and watching the turtles. The team also records turtle activity, nests and hatchings.
