Place is great for the kids , educate them about endangered animals and what they do to preserve. Gift shop is a little high but I guess we pay to help the project

A fairly small display but very well organized. Some really huge specimens of turtles. Definitely worth a visit. Quiet place right in the center of Praia do Forte. Great for small kids. Only negative, turtle water quite murky difficult sometimes to see the animals well.

The work these researchers from Projeto Tamar have been doing is fabulous. They fight for the conservation of several species of turtles and the visit is fun and educational. Kids and adults will love it.
