Sri Lanka, Galle, 29 Sep 2012

Last day in Sri Lanka, drove from Galle to the Colombo Airport stopping at the Galle Fort and a Turtle Hatchery. At the Hatchery they collect eggs from the beach before they get stolen, rebury them in the hatchery, wait for the eggs to hatch, keep the babies for 3 days the critical period and then release them into the sea. They also keep Albino baby’s and disabled turtles. The Albinos are conspicuous and don’t last long in the wild.
