We do not encourage our visitors to patronise the turtle hatcheries as this concept has serious negative aspects in terms of conservation. We encourage visitors to observe turtles in their natural habitats. For further information check the link below. http://www.srilankaecotourism.com/turtle_hatchery_threat.htm
Traditional village tour with a canoe trip and bullock carts – Habarana
This is an extremely commercialised touristic operation where a lot is “staged”. We encourage the visitors to have less touristic experiences and instead experience the real Sri Lanka.
Elephant back rides – Habarana
We have concerns about the way this is being done. However, there maybe a few ethical operators but in general we do not agree with the “working hours”, how they give rest to the animals, trails they use etc.
