Turtle Conservation Center, Sattahip
Sattahip district in Chonburi province is about 50 km south of Pattaya, and it is where many Royal Thai Navy centers are situated. There are also several impressive white sandy beaches on islands like Koh Kham and Koh Samae San in the Gulf of Thailand. It can be said that Sattahip is a fantastic place for marine conservation traveling and learning not very far from the Thai capital.
Sea Turtle Conservation Center under the care of the Royal Thai Navy was established in 1950 with two main purposes. The first one is to do research and nurture baby sea turtles and release them back to the sea. The second one is to protect turtle hatching areas and educate the public about sustainable natural resource conservation.
It opens every day from 08:30 am to 17:00. Visitors can spend hours there without paying for entrance fee. It is very popular among groups of students and parents who travel with kids. In the exhibition areas, food, drinks, and smoking are not allowed. Visitors should dress politely. Swimming is also prohibited in its area. Actually, there are many more beautiful beaches suitable for snorkeling on Koh Kham and Koh Samae San.
What to see at Turtle Conservation Center, Sattahip
There are four main parts in the center; in-building exhibition rooms, aquarium, turtle nurturing areas, and the rest area on the beach. Two white turtles that are rarely seen in the world are nurtured at the
center. They haven’t been released to nature for fear that their outstanding color will make them an easy prey. Situated also in the Sea Turtle Conservation Center is the Royal Thai Navy Marine Endangered Species Rescue and Rehabilitation Center or the Sea Turtle Hospital. After learning about the cute sea turtles, your kids may want to bring ones home. A souvenir shop where you can buy turtle dolls for them is available there.
Roughly a few kilometers from the Sea Turtle Conservation Center docks Thailand's first and only aircraft carrier called Chakri Naruebet. This aircraft carrier has been used on many disaster relief operations. One of the most important operations is the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami rescue. Many visitors stop by to take pictures with this warship on the way to Nang Ram Beach. However, foreigners are not allowed to be on the carrier.
