Kelonia: Reunion sea turtles observatory
A chance to learn something new and be amazed
Situated on the shores of the lagoon in the superb surroundings of St Leu Bay, Kélonia offers a unique experience in the company of sea turtles:
- Discoveries: Dive into the world of these mysterious marine reptiles and learn about their biological secrets.
- Encounters: Old objects, sculptures and dioramas are used to illustrate the turtle’s place in human society over time and from place to place.
- The future: interactive multimedia and terminals enable visitors to think about the ways we can reconcile the development of human society with the preservation of turtles and their habitats.
The Scientific hub: Kélonia is involved in various programmes to study and preserve sea turtles and their habitats in Reunion and the Indian Ocean, made possible by partnerships with other teams in the region, particularly in Madagascar, the Comoros and the Seychelles. The treatment centre exists to help injured and sick turtles, caring for them before releasing them back into the sea. The turtles are routinely sponsored by school students.
The Kelonia shop showcases a wide range of local handicrafts and responsible trade products. Its sells a unique selection of sea turtle-related items and Reunion Island souvenirs.
