Philippines > Pamalican

Pamalican is a nesting site for green and hawksbill turtles. Every year from March until October, females come up to the beach at night to lay their eggs. To assist in protecting this endangered species, Amanpulo staff monitor the laying process, before transferring the eggs to a hatchery, located at the Windsurf Hut. Whenever baby turtles are hatching, Amanpulo guests are invited to watch the release of the baby turtles into the sea.
