Constance Lemuria – baby turtles released into ocean

The beaches at Constance Lémuria on Praslin Island, Seychelles are important nesting sites for the endangered hawksbill and green turtles. These majestic creatures return to the same beaches year after year to lay their eggs.

Baby turtles at Constance Lemuria

Baby turtles enter the ocean for the first time

On 22 February 2012, 168 baby turtles were released to make their way to the ocean at Petite Anse Kerlan, next to the resort’s Beach Bar & Grill.

Our turtle programme

Thanks to our turtle programme, we’re seeing an increase in the number of nests each year. For the turtles to continue coming, we maintain the beaches in their natural condition.

The success of the programme hinges on the hard work of our Turtle Manager, our work with the Marine Conservation Society Seychelles, and the support of the local community and hotel guests.
