Between December and February at the Jurabi Turtle Centre, an expert guide will ensure that you know how to minimise disturbance to the turtles before leading you to a rookery to wait for them in the darkness to come ashore and lay their eggs. (Fees apply. Booking essential.)
Volunteers are needed every year between December and January to monitor nesting beaches for turtle activity.

Jurabi Turtle Centre
From December through to early March join a guided Turtle Eco-Education tour and scout for female turtles making their way on to the beach to lay their eggs.
Guided Turtle Eco-Education tours increase the chance of finding and observing nesting female turtles in the natural environment. Viewing nesting female turtles and hatchlings with a guide minimises your chance of disturbing them which will increase the chance of female turtles successfully laying eggs.
