Turtle Hatching Release
Discover an amazing wilderness experience
This could be your once in a lifetime first-hand insight to the wonderful world of nature’s turtle phenomenon. You can become personally involved with the resort’s conservation initiative that is allowing sea turtles to regenerate their colonies.
Six Senses Con Dao has earned an enviable reputation as one of the very few resorts where guests can marvel at the experience of turtle hatchlings venturing down the beach into the wide and free ocean waters. This is only one of the resort’s unique programs to engage guests in the protection of the sea turtles and contribute to the sustainable development of Con Dao’s ecosystem.
In collaboration with National Parks, Six Senses Con Dao is entrusted to be the custodian of selected clutches of turtle eggs, relocated by the National Parks team to protect the eggs from being poached from nests at neighboring islands. The resort's incubation center, "Let's Get Cracking" has since been home to many new hatchlings, and where guests participate in the conservation efforts, by joining early morning releases, right on the resort’s very own beach.
