You can watch different stages of breeding young turtles and growing them up before they are given back to their natural environment in the Atlantic Ocean.

We visited the nursery to see the turtles briefly, which we succeeded in dong. There were only 2 accessible tanks with 3 turtle in total to see, but we expected this and weren’t disappointed. The member of staff also took our camera (iPhone) to take...More

Made a special trip to see what they label as a conservational breeding site, the place was desserted and devoid of turtles. Maybe later in the season someone may make some effort to warrant the monies provided by the EU to fund it

Turtle Nursery doing important work for the injured sea Turtle. They tried to revitalize the sea turtle population also. In Canary island can see 4 on the sea turtle species. The place is very small, but worth a visit.

This small, but much needed sanctuary is trying to keep the loggerhead turtles alive and well. They take in the sick injured as well as keeping the turtle grounds from being plundered for the eggs. There are only two small tanks that visitors can adult...More
