Trip Planner: South America / Brazil / State of Bahia / Mata de Sao Joao / Praia do Forte / Projeto Tamar
Dedicated to the protection of sea turtles along the Brazilian coast, Projeto Tamar is a conservation project that allows you to view several types of turtles and a couple of sharks. If you're interested in eco-tourism, this is must-see attraction. The organized grounds contain large tanks where you can view turtles in an environment that mimics their wild habitat. While this is an interesting attraction all year round, it is especially touching from October to March when you can watch the release of baby turtles into the wild. Before you visit Praia do Forte, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

Good idea, good intention but a little short on info and infrastructure to be a more than 10 years project. Nice restaurants
