is proud to support sea turtle conservation in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The Amanyara Sea Turtle Initiative has been running since 2011 and allows guests the opportunity to catch, tag and release green sea turtles on the Caicos Bank. This data allows the study of growth rates, habitat use and provides tourism, government and the local community an opportunity to work in collaboration. To date the project has flipper tagged over 400 turtles and applied satellite tags to turtles that will also help in learning about their migrations.
's beach. The corals have been rescued off the reef, after they have been damaged or broken by storm events or anchor damage. 500 corals are then being 'planted' on to the Reef Balls; 900+ of them sit just off shore. Amanyara guests have the opportunity to get involved in this environmentally significant project; corals and Reef Balls are up for adoption, and you can join Amanyara's Naturalist for a guided snorkel and planting.
@steph_ziegler joins the Amanyara Sea Turtle Initiative out on the Caicos Banks to catch, tag and release a green sea turtle. This research helps to give important information about TCI's turtle population and contributes to conservation and the community.
