Visit the Turtle hatchery in Kosgoda which is being operated by the Wild Life Protection Society of Sri Lanka.

Several species of turtles, especially the endangered hawksbill are protected here. Most vulnerable of all are their eggs, which are left uncovered on beaches all around the coast. The goodwill of Kosgoda area fishermen who bring these eggs gratis to the hatchery has led to The hatching and have released around 100,000 young turtles in only two years since the Hatchery opened.
