Turtle Hatching, end July to end
September (Approximate Dates)
North Cyprus is one of the few turtle nesting areas in the Mediterranean. Every year student volunteers study these animals. Around 60 days after nesting, the eggs begin to hatch. The volunteers give any stragglers a hand once the sun starts going down, and you can watch this. Booking is not necessary, but there is not an excavation every day, and normally not an excavation on a Sunday. Public excavations will be announced on this web site and the turtle blog. For more information on turtles and their nesting, follow the links. Follow their exploits by reading their 2008 diary, or their 2009 blog. (Back to Top)
