The work these researchers from Projeto Tamar have been doing is fabulous. They fight for the conservation of several species of turtles and the visit is fun and educational. Kids and adults will love it.

Bring context to your kids and this will be a great visit. Talk about the turtles, the sharks, and why this protection project was created. Otherwise, they will be bored in 20 minutes.

Wonderful place to visit! Well structured and located in a lovely small beach town. The clothes at the store are of great quality, and the restaurant inside the project is very good too. Worth the visit!

Tamar is a Brazilian environmental protection project which is already 37 years old and protects sea turtles. It is totally worth a visit! Try the guided tour with explanations. You can see turtles, sharks and other animals and learn about their reproduction and conservation.

What a wonderful turtle sanctuary! It was beautiful to see. The entire facility is well cared-for (with shell-shaped bathrooms!!). The restaurant is one of, if not the only, with a perfect view of the water so we ended up taking all of our lunches there....More

It seems that Praia do Forte is like a high-end tourist trap until you get to see this Projeto Tamar. It is rare that a place to breed turtles is available to people. So it really is cool to see it.
