I urge you to check with this Turtle project when you first get to the island. They have a very educational display at their site in the middle of the island and several times each week you might have the chance to see them working with the turtles , depending on what is going on at that time of year. When we were there we were told to meet them at the Port beach. We watched them bring in a juvenile turtle for checking for it's health and tagging it. It was a thrilling site.

This project is probably the most successful of environmental and animals conservation in Brazil. There is a good daily different talking program on related subjects which is worth listening to, at the Tamar project premises.
I listened to dolphin, and local plants talks and learned quite a lot. The video films presented are of special interest and enrich the talks.
Also there is a lot of information at the Tamar location within main village vicinities

Witnessing the birth of sea turtles on the beach was one of the best experience ever, it is good to support them going to visit the centre as they really do a good job!

They schedule turtle identifications on the beach and you can go and watch (also hear a little talk). It was very nice. Also I visited the tree nursery (which was not a usual visit, but they did us a favor).

We were astounded to see them in action on Sueste Beach. They brought in two different species of turtles, and many of each type. They collected DNA samples and then tagged them, and released them back into the water. There was a film crew there as well. They were intent on informing others about the merits of marine ecology. I am so glad we got to participate. Unfortunately they were speaking Portuguese, but it was worthwhile.
