Island is the ideal place for laying eggs to Green sea Turtle (Chelonia mydas)
and hawksbill sea turtle (Eretmochelys imbricate). From April to November every
year, there are more than 400 mother turtles make nests and lay eggs on the
sandbanks of Con Dao National Park. In the rush time of breeding season in July
and August, there are about 20 mother turtles laying eggs each night.
Since 1994, the process of protecting mother
turtles, preserving eggs and incubating and releasing baby turtles to the sea
has been developing as a specific tourist service at Con Dao National Park.
