  • A nice scenic drive along the mountain to get to the sanctuary. Upon arrival we were met by Dwight who looks after the rescued turtles. From babies to adults you can see the turtles at all different stages...A small operation but a necessary one. Keep up the dedication.
  • An okay place and I got to try and touch one of the grown turtles. Warning: you’re not allowed to touch bathe baby turtles for obvious reasons. But cool and all if you wanna see a place where they safe turtles and keep them until they can swim again. :)
