Program of your turtle night spotting adventure
in this case while coming to seashore to lay eggs. WeBy boat, we sail on the Suriname and Commewijne River. Along the way, we will encounter numerous coastal birds resting in the mangrove. Like the different herons, stalks, the American frigate, and seagulls. If you are lucky you can also spot pink dolphins in their natural habitat! The turtles will come on the beach to lay their eggs. Please follow the instructions of the guide. If the turtle is disturbed she will go back to the sea and lay her eggs in the water instead of the beach.
