I wish to go to Sri Lanka in August 2018 for 2 weeks to help save at-risk sea turtles.
Fishing is one of the major industries in Sri Lanka and the location of the project is set up on a beach very close to the local fisheries port. Turtles are found stuck in fishing nets and have lost limbs, many are no longer able to survive in the wild.
The programme aims to rehabilitate disabled turtles and protect turtle eggs that have been stolen by local poachers. Aswell as this, there are mass beach cleans across ambalangoda beach where eggs are laid.
The turtle conservation in Sri Lanka would be an amazing opportunity to travel and help these amazing animals.
