Event Overview

Turtles coming out from eggs is natural phenomenon, which is not in our hands to control. Sometimes sightings of baby turtle is not possible due to less eggs of the season or there might be some other reaason. But as a Organizer we try hard from our end to cover multiple sessions and after all its luck. And yes, we would like to mention that last year our all batch participants were able to see baby turtles.
