A programme aimed at increasing awareness about turtle conservation, organized by the Wildlife Conservation Department, was held on Thursday (15) at the Galle Face Hotel and Galle Face beach strip.

In this programme, stakeholders including members from the Navy, Coast Guard and Wildlife Conservation Department were educated about the important role turtles play in protecting marine biodiversity. This includes efforts to conserve turtles, classified as an endangered species, as well as safeguarding turtle eggs and safely releasing hatchlings into the ocean. The Turtle Conservation Project, which is part of the Navy Environmental Conservation Project, protects endangered turtle species by preserving their eggs and safely releasing hatchlings into the ocean. This effort greatly contributes to preserving biodiversity in the marine ecosystem.

The Navy operates a turtle conservation centre in the Panama area. Additionally, the Coast Guard manages turtle conservation centres along the West, South and East coasts, all of which are well-maintained.
