Welcome to the Cayman Turtle Centre Cayman Turtle Centre was established in 1968 as Mariculture Ltd. by a group of investors from the United States and Great Britain as a facility to raise the green sea turtle, Chelonia mydas, for commercial purposes. The intention was to supply the market with a source of product that did not deplete the wild populations further. By releasing turtles and facilitating research, any harm created by removing turtles and eggs from the wild would be mitigated. Cayman's largest land-based attraction , Cayman Turtle Centre: Island Wildlife Encounter hosts more than 200,000 visitors each year. Educational, cultural and entertainment programmes are consistently being created and updated to enhance the experience that can only be found at our world renowned attraction.

Egg Translocation & Nest Implantation - A Green Turtle Release Programme Cayman Turtle Centre’s core mission is to conserve sea turtles, and a part of our conservation efforts includes taking captive bred turtles, and releasing them into the wild. So far we have released more than 32,000 turtles into the waters around the Cayman Islands, a combination of hatchlings and “head-started” turtles a year or more in age. A recent DNA analysis study by the Department of Environment and the Universities of Barcelona and Exeter, funded by the UK’s Darwin Plus initiative, established that many of these have come home to the Cayman Islands to nest. Essentially, what they found was great news, a resounding confirmation of the success of our release programs. Read More

All The Power to our Battalion of Young Turtle Rangers One of the main problems causing a life hazard to turtles in the wild is the discharge of plastic waste into the ocean. Not only turtles but also other marine creatures consume the menacing plastic wastes, mistaking it for food. Owing to this alarming situation, our education outreach team came up with the innovative and enlightening idea of #3PlasticsADay . Realizing the fact that this can’t be a one-person job but a collective responsibility, the idea behind this campaign was to make people aware of this extremely devastating state and to diminish the use of plastic as well as its improper disposal into the ocean.
