From June until December you can find out all about turtles in Cape Verde by visiting us at our turtle hatchery on the beach outside the RIU hotel or at The Turtle House in Santa Maria (next to CV Telecom). During July, August & September we can take you on a guided walk to see one of nature's most spectacular events - a turtle coming ashore to lay her eggs. Then from August to December there are baby turtles being born before your eyes in the hatchery. Adopting a baby turtle or a whole nest is a unique and genuinely Capeverdean souvenir! You will receive a certificate and photos of your baby or babies after they are born. A great gift for friends and family back home. The activities are managed by The Cabo Verde Nature Company and your contributions help to fund protection of turtles throughout the Cabo Verde islands. Hatchery visits are free and are available daily between 10h-12h and 16h-18h. Please check with your hotel or tour rep for more information or visit the Turtle House.
