Kish Sea Turtles
The surrounding waters of the coral Island of Kish are habitats for hawksbill and Green turtle species. Green turtles mostly come to Kish waters for feeding while the hawks bill turtles that are facing an extremely high risk of extinction come out on the preserved beaches for egg-laying largely along the southern and western coasts of the Island between mid-March and early August. Which is so amazing is, female sea turtles return to the same beaches where they originally hatched to lay their own eggs. After coordination with “Kish Sea Turtles Conservation & Monitoring Center”, during the breeding season and primarily under cover of darkness, tourists can enjoy watching the sea turtles’ digging out a nest hole to lay eggs, also the baby sea turtles emerging from their nests and go exactly through the water and enter the Persian Gulf waters as if they knew it before.
