Projeto TAMAR Fernando de Noronha - Patrocínio PETROBRAS, Fernando de Noronha

Specialty Museum · Museum
Projeto TAMAR Fernando de Noronha - Patrocínio PETROBRAS will introduce you to the sea turtle, whose flippers and big eyes are sure to touch your heart. The project began as a research center that studied the behavior of the turtle, but along the way scientists uncovered significant damage from poachers and other habitat destruction. So, the project evolved into a program that preserves sea turtle habitats and educates visitors on habitat preservation. At the visitor’s center, you will see baby turtles propelling themselves through the water in manmade pools as they practice with their flippers. A guide from the center will teach you about the behavior of the sea turtle, which you'll observe in the shell-toting occupants that swim in the protected waters nearby. The habitat also doubles as an aquarium, sheltering shark species and other aquatic life that share the turtles natural habitat. Our Fernando de Noronha tour planning tool makes visiting Projeto TAMAR Fernando de Noronha - Patrocínio PETROBRAS and other Fernando de Noronha attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
