Sea Turtle Ecology Course

Sea Turtle Ecology Course

Did you know there are 7 species of turtle living in our oceans and seas and as a species, they have been around for more than 125 million years…that’s longer than the Eastenders TV show! On Koh Tao (aka Turtle Island) there are 84 individual turtles that have been identified and named last time I checked. If you find a new one while diving on Koh Tao you can choose the name.  Find out more.
