Green sea turtles hatched at Sangeli

Green sea turtles hatched at Sangeli

Great surprise at Sangeli today: the green sea turtle nest hatched! Our TGI Maldives’ team found 20 of the baby green turtles still in their nest, whilst others had already started to crawl to the ocean. Under the supervision of our marine biologist, we gently helped them to the water. Luckily, once they felt the water, they immediately recovered and swam out into the ocean.

It usually takes green turtle nests 49 to 62 days to hatch here in the Maldives: these baby turtles on Sangeli were in the average, it took them about 60 days to hatch.

Snorkelling around Sangeli gives a very good chance of seeing turtles: join our Turtle Snorkeling Excursion to maximize your chance of swimming with these amazing creatures.
