Join the eco-guards of Programa Tatô in their sea turtle protection shift.
The journey starts at Morro Peixe fishermen village with a dinner in the company of foreign biologist working on the project. Then you will visit the sea turtles museum to discover about the life of sea turtles.
Later on, we will take you to one of the many beaches where 3 to 4 species of sea turtles come to lay eggs. Then you will start the patrol and you may have a chance to see turtle nestling.
Since the eco-guards work as a network team, we are in contact with the guards watching the other beaches, and they will inform us as soon as a turtle arrives.
