2012 Sea Turtle Season Begins, How You Can Help

March may signal the beginning of spring for you. Here at Rosalie Bay Resort on Dominica, it signals the return of our famous guests – the sea turtles.

From March through October every year, the Green, Hawksbill and giant Leatherback turtles come to our black sand beach to nest. It is always a spectacular event to witness and an exciting time for our guests.

Guests who visit this time of year can participate in education programs, watch over these gentle giants as they nest and be “on call” for when the tiny hatchlings make their way out to sea.

How you can help
Many guests have asked us how they can help the turtles. Whether you are here for sea turtle season or not, there are many ways you can help the sea turtle conservation efforts at Rosalie Bay and Dominica:

      • Leave behind your local EC currency at the Front Desk for our “Sea of Change” program benefiting the sea turtle conservation and local literacy efforts
      • Learn about the creation of the sea turtle conservation program and purchase the keepsake ROSTI book from the gift shop.
      • Send a sea turtle postcard to friends back home or bring home to frame (*coming soon to the gift shop).
      • Purchase the Rosalie turtle, hand-carved by local artists, as a souvenir from your vacation (*coming soon to the gift shop).

All of these programs benefit the sea turtle conservation program, which helps these endangered species.
