It is on the navel base, and a great initiative. If the figures they give out are true then it really is making a difference. There are lots of turtles in different pools and of different ages but that is about all.

It is a very small conservation area with turtles at various stages of growth kept in tiles containers. It's only 60 baht PP and you will see all there is to see in under 1 hour. They retrieve the eggs from the beach to stop...More

Great place to visit. It’s amazing that we have any turtles left in the wild when you hear the challenges they go through. Refreshing to visit a project that is so focussed on saving not just the turtles but also endangered tropical fish. Worth a...More
