Dive Into Turtle Conservation

Hey there! Are you interested in marine turtles and their conservation? Great! Get ready to dive into a world where ancient creatures and modern conservation efforts meet. 

Marine turtles are super interesting and have been swimming in our oceans for over 100 million years. There are seven different types, each with its own unique traits and living environments. Imagine the green turtle with its large, smooth carapace or the massive leatherback, the largest of all sea turtles, known for its leather-like shell and deep diving skills.

First up, let’s explore the fascinating biology of these turtles. There are two main families, Cheloniidae and Dermochelyidae. The first group has turtles with hard shells, while the second includes the leatherback with its softer, rubbery shell. This mix shows just how diverse and cool turtle evolution can be!

Each of these turtle species has a special role in the ocean. Some, like the green turtle, help maintain healthy seagrass beds, while others control jellyfish populations. But it’s not just about knowing these facts; you can also join in on the action to protect these awesome animals.

How? Well, you can volunteer to help with turtle conservation. Imagine spending time on a beach at night, watching over nesting sites, or helping baby turtles reach the ocean safely. You could also work alongside researchers, helping them gather important data about turtle numbers and health. This hands-on work really makes a difference and helps protect turtles from threats like habitat destruction and illegal poaching.

Our conservation projects aren’t just about the hard work; they’re also about learning and understanding these creatures better. Through various activities and workshops, you’ll learn about the challenges turtles face and how you can help protect them, even from your own home.

Whether you’re a teen looking for an adventure or a family wanting to do something meaningful on vacation, our turtle conservation experiences are open to everyone. It’s a chance to see new places, meet new people, and really make an impact.

So, are you ready to jump in and help save these amazing creatures? Join us and be part of a global effort to conserve marine turtles. It’s not just an adventure; it’s a chance to do something really important for the planet. Let’s make a difference together for these incredible turtles and the oceans they inhabit. Dive into turtle conservation today and be a part of something big!

Memorable and enjoyable 15 days in Sri Lanka with Green Holidays The green holidays organised our whole trip to Sri Lanka according to our suggestions and requirements. We had a perfect, peaceful and enjoyable 15 days holiday. Pradeep and Rashmi booked the accommodation, vehicle for travel and the the driver/guide within a very short time. They were very prompt in responding to our messages and accommodating our last minute changes. The hotels they booked were comfortable, check in was so smooth and the service was good. We were able to do much more than we anticipated because of their coordination. Our guide/driver Romesh was very polite, trustworthy and punctual. We travelled with Romesh from Colombo to Batticaloa, Jaffna, Kandy and Galle in his car without any incidents and reached safely at the airport on time for our return flight. We thank Pradeep, Jay, Rashmi and Romesh for making our trip a pleasant and an enjoyable one.

Travel in peace and with Personal contact of Green Holidays We used the services of Green Holiday for our stay in Sri Lanka. They arranged the complete tour picking us up at the Bandaranayaka Airport and taking us to Jaffna, Batticaloa, Bentota, Colombo and Kandy including Ella. Green Holiday provided us with a Chauffeur/ tour guide ( Upul) who knew so much about SriLanka and its History and personally took care of our safety and was with us to ensure our check in at the hotels was flawless. Upul is a honest trustworthy person to rely on and was very caring. Thanks to Green Holidays for providing a knowledgeable person to be with us throughout the trip. We had the pleasure of dealing with Pradeep who planned out our trip to our liking with several changes requested by us and was available on the phone anytime 24/7 to discuss and review options. Rashmi from Green Holidays was our local contact in case of any emergency or for information once we were in in Sri Lanka. We were glad to have the assurance of a personal contact while on vacation. Green Holidays has earned our trust to make our vacation relaxing and trouble free. We recommend Green Holidays as a reliable trustworthy company to book your vacation packages. Their team worked vigorously to ensure our vacation is pleasant, memorable and safe.

Great driver, great Organisation My boyfriend and i took a two week holiday on sri lanka. One week on road, one week beach holiday. Apart from a little mishap at the start when our arrival time was wrongly put at 09.30 instead of 05.30. However all it took was a quick phone to Dilan our driver who rushed to pick us up immediately. Due to delays on the way here and a little visa issue (always double check your passport numbers twice people) we arrived in the arrival hall at 07.30…once we had called the adventure began at 08.15. Dilan was an absolute godsend. Kept us entertained with facts about the areas we were visiting, made good conversation during our long journeys and got us there safe and sound every time. Dilan would also help us plan out our day and was honest enough when something was either gonna be a rushjob or whenever he felt we weren’t gonna get the best bang for our buck at a certain attraction. which we really appreciated, since we had completely missjudged the traffic and the distances on this journey. He also helped us handle check-ins and check-out and as we later found out when we made excursions of our own, he also kept pesky scammers away whenever we went to visit a place on foot. As for the rest of the trip everything went incredibly smoothly. Hotel staff were super friendly with us and safaris and other tour providers were informed well in advance so that we would literaly rock up, get into another car or jeep or were handed over to a local guide and be on our way right away. So long story short, we would like to thank Green Holiday and Dilan for making our trip the adventure of a lifetime and wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone traveling in sri lanka.

Absolutely reliable company with best guides. First of all, this company we used for arranging our whole vacation in Sri Lanka worked just perfect. We had no issue whatsoever. For travelling around the island for several days we had a guide Upul. He just was the best! Not only he was driving us around safe, he also knew about history, gave us all the explanations in a very interesting way. He took us in many great, beautiful and even fun places, always stood by our side, guiding us through crowds to the most interesting points and telling us all the information - about history, religions, politics, traditions, nature, you name it. Upul was truly able to answer any question we had. On top of that, he was always smiling, in a good mood, treated us with dignity and patiency. We truly appreciated it and thanks to him and a perfect organization we had the best time in Sri Lanka. I also want to say, that the company manager got in touch with us on the second day, asking how satisfied we were with Upul, checking if everything was ok. It was a nice thing to do. Overall, I truly recommend this company if you want to spend your vacatin with no hassle and great guiding.
