Watch a sea turtle be reintroduced into the wild
Projeto Tamar has locations throughout Brazil and works in marine conservation and rehabilitation of sea turtles. Florianópolis is home to one the more successful programs and frequently reintroduces sea turtles back to their natural habitat in Barra da Lagoa. These are open to the public (and free), and nearly always happen at 3:00pm. Stay tuned to the Projeto Tamar website for exact dates and locations, and consider making this a special experience as part of any Floripa itinerary.
