TURTLE HATCHING

[/plethora_headinggroup][vc_column_text]Maziwe Marine Reserve is a turtle breeding ground of utmost importance. Due to sand erosion on the island the turtle nests get covered by the high tide and the nests are doomed. A relocation project sees the nests located to the mainland where they have a chance of survival. The turtles that hatch from Ushongo beach will return here to nest in future, ensuring the survival of the species. Witness this bucket list worthy event and hear about our conservation efforts from the marine team first hand.[/vc_column_text][plethora_button button_text=”VIDEO” button_link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fthetidestanzania.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2019%2F11%2FTurtle%20Hatching.mp4||target:%20_blank|” button_style2=”btn-link” button_with_icon=”0″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row_content_no_spaces” content_placement=”middle” row_padding_bottom=”padding_bottom_none”][vc_column width=”1/2″ offset=”vc_col-lg-8 vc_col-md-7″ css=”.vc_custom_1572527531428{background-image: url(http://thetidestanzania.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/activity_03.jpg?id=2046) !important;background-position: center !important;background-repeat: no-repeat !important;background-size: cover !important;}”][vc_empty_space height=”300px”][vc_empty_space height=”200px” el_class=”hidden-xs hidden-sm hidden-md”][vc_empty_space height=”100px” el_class=”hidden-xs”][vc_empty_space height=”100px” el_class=”hidden-xs hidden-sm”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″ color_set=”white_section” align=”text-left” boxed=”boxed_plus” el_class=”col-md-pull-1″ offset=”vc_col-lg-4 vc_col-md-5″][plethora_headinggroup subtitle=”EXPLORE OUR CORAL REEFS” align=”text-left” subtitle_position=”top” divider=””]
