Hibiscus Foundation for Protected Turtle Species

  • Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

Updated 06/22/2011

Fodor's Review

Based at the Hibiscus Hotel, this sanctuary rescues sea turtles that have been caught in commercial fishnets—most get sold on the lucrative black market. More than 1,300 turtles have been nursed back to heath at the sanctuary which tags the healthy turtles before releasing them into open waters. For US$100 you can sponsor and name a turtle and receive updates on its progress in the wild.
