Elewana AfroChic Diani has another turtle nest in our hatchery!

Elewana AfroChic is excited to announce another nest has appeared in our hatchery. Recently the team was excited to discover new Turtle trails coming up from the sea leading onto our beach area. The team followed the trails which ended up in another Turtle's nest making it our second nest of season 2018. We have protected the nest and the countdown begins.

The first nest in our turtle hatchery for 2018 was placed on 10th February with over a hundred eggs and they should be hatching any day now. We're hoping the new nest will hatch in approximately two months so sometime around the beginning of May, although this does depends on the weather. The sex of a turtle is determined by the temperature of the nest and in most cases, eggs from warmer nests hatch as all females.

Stay tuned for updates as we work to save these endangered species and bring you exciting news from our hatchery!
