Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project Absolute Bliss and not Barbeque :D It's wise to leave your footprints on the beach, instead of leaving your carbon footprints on earth We then followed it up with a stop to the local market in the middle of the highway to buy souvenirs and to do a bit of shopping....

Top Places To Visit in Kosgoda 6 Spots

A2, කොස්ගොඩ Turtle Hatchery, Sri Lanka
And he was right.. he took me to the best place.. the Turtle Hatchery... Perfect way to forget about Nature's fury is to start seeing Nature's beauty. As the owner started showing me the whole process of how they rescue the soft shelled eggs of turtles and then take care of them. They allow you to touch them and send as much time with them as you'd like. They have turtle of all ages; from a few weeks old to the few years old. The special part is that they have a rescue zone for the handicapped turtles too. The cutest reptiles ever... as I interacted with them and tickled them over their shells and let them rest on my out-stretched arms... I kept smiling for hours. This is definitely a must do in Sri Lanka!

13A Galle Road, Kosgoda
We then went to Kosgada Turtle Conservation Project where we i saw the mighty Olive Ridley Turtles (which is there only at Srilanka and the Eastern Coast of India (Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Orissa) for the first time in my life. I have heard about a similar conservation in Chennai around their breeding season but never got a chance to see it. There are so little turtles left and preserving is an absolute necessity. There are Green Turtles, Loggerheads, Hawksbill's and Leatherback to name a few. All of them are endangered species and are at an brink of extinction.After a brief turtle study, we headed to the beach. The sand was pristine and the weather was perfect. It was quite a dream to be in that kind of a location. I was rendered speechless and was quick to settle at one empty portion, with my mind still as a clear water and was so sitting in peace.We then followed it up with a stop to the local market in the middle of the highway to buy souvenirs and to do a bit of shopping. Once again the guide was reminding us for an early check-in and we had to start early to reach the Bandaranaike International Airport.The willingness of the company to sponsor such a high paying trip and to top it all, being as one family irrespective of the position one holds is highly appreciable. The highlight of the tour was that we all went as a group of 190 people and returned as a family of one. We started and returned as INFA GCS.Cheers and happy travelling,Wanderer.This post was originally published on Rajesh Bucket List.
