Good project

This is a turtle project center. It shows what they do to preserve this magnificant animal for extintion. For that its a must visit.

The turtles are huge- and so are the fake ones all over the place- but little educational material. I have to say I'm a bit sceptical of a wildlife project sponsored by a petroleum company- lots of mention of danger to wildlife, except for oil! It's also not very well laid out- you keep finding yourself in dead ends. It's... More

nice to see the turtles, but the enclosures seemed too small, it's a beautiful location directly on the beach near the church

Liked the turtle exhibits. Disliked the promotional films in the cinema which seemed to be focused on retailing merchandise.

The work that is being done in Projeto Tamar is really valuable, better to say that it is priceless, all their statistics and achievements are great. BUT the way that things are being presented there could be much better.
