we came away very upset after our visit, the baby turtles, that had hatched In The early hours of the morning were exhausted swimming in a tank waiting for release in the evening, we were allowed to pick them up, and they just rested inyour hand.The large turtles kept in captivity for 3 to 4 years just so visitors can see them, they are in small tanks and looked distressed. There is no need to have fully grown turtles kept in captivity just for the benefit of visitors. The poor albino turtle just looked desperately sad, going from one end of the small tank to the other. This is not conservation in my book, more like a tourist stop off to get your entrance fee.

Very, very interesing at 1000 rupees entrance fee. The guide led us very quickly through the compound most probably because a large group of people were next. It is worth a visit although the area needs a face lift.

Not sure whether this is conservation or not. The eggs are bought then hatched and kept in a concrete tank. All visiting are encouraged to handle them. Once big enough they are released back into the sea. There are albino and disfigured turtles kept in very small concrete tanks which hardly appear big enough. At the end of the visit there is hard sell to make ‘ a donation’.

Great way to understand turtle wildlife in Sri Lanka. We paid 1000 LKR per person (price differs depending if it's crowded or not) and a guide walked us through every tank of turtles explaining us the types and risks. Very informative!

A stop by the main road well worth your time. The entrance is 1000 LKS (which go to conservation of the turtles). You get a nice tour through the rescue and research facilities and a lot of information about turtles. You get to see and touch the turtles. For 500 extra you can join the evening's release of new baby turtles (around 6-7pm)
