Hatchery and beach management programmes offer excellent opportunities for education and awareness. They allow wildlife enthusiasts and school and college students to participate in and contribute to conservation programmes, and help in giving them exposure to key conservation issues and to learn the basics of wildlife research.
If funds are available, some material or handout with basic information should be provided to visitors to the hatchery or participants on turtle walks. During turtle walks, clear instructions (verbal or written) must be provided on behaviour, especially with regard to nesting turtles. A sufficient number of volunteers should be present to guide the group.
Some useful outreach material is available on this site.
