Kélonia Sea Turtle Observatory

Recommended
This is a paradise for sea turtles, who swim in pools reproducing their natural habitat in the wild. An exhibition shows the relationship between man and this marine reptile throughout history, including thoughts about envisioning a successful cohabitation between these animals and mankind. This sea turtle observatory also has pilot programmes for research as well as a treatment centre. The ultramodern museography is coupled with numerous interactive displays.
