Elewana AfroChic Diani turtle hatchery for 2018

Turtle Hatchery ACD.jpg

The first nest in our turtle hatchery for 2018 was placed on 10th February with over a hundred eggs in the beach. We're hoping they'll hatch in approximately two months, although this does depend on the weather. Since February it has been fairly hot, we anticipate more females to be hatched. The sex of a turtle is determined by the temperature of the nest and in most cases, eggs from warmer nests hatch as all females. Having more female’s means more eggs will be laid hence better chance of increasing the number of Turtles in the years to come.

Stay tuned for updates as we work to save these endangered species.

Come and stay with us at Elewana AfroChic Diani around the beginning of April and you may be lucky to witness this extraordinary event!!
