Each season the bissa turtles or hawksbill turtles come to the beaches of Little Corn Island to lay eggs. The centuries of intensive hunting have led to the fact that now they are on the verge of extinction. Participants of the volunteer center collect the eggs of turtles and take care of the born turtles, keep them in small pools for a while and return to the wild.

How to do?

2. Board the ferry on Big Corn and go to the Little Corn.
3. The island occupies only 3 kilometers, so finding a volunteer center and the beach, where turtles lay their eggs, is not difficult.
4. Depending on your arrival time, you can watch the turtles laying their eggs, the baby turtles swimming in the pool, and if you're lucky — you will release the turtles, which gained strength, into the ocean and watch that they are not attacked by predators.
