This space currently has turtles born on Cofete Beach, within the project "Expansion of the reproductive habitat of the loggerhead turtle ( Caretta caretta ) in Macaronesia", and specimens of rescued turtles that are in recovery.

For the safety of people and turtles, please follow a series of rules of conduct, such as: not touching the turtles, or their tanks, speaking in a low tone, entering the center without food, using cameras without flash, or not exceeding the limits of the tanks with objects or body parts.

Visits are possible on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with an approximate duration of 20 minutes. The Center reserves the right to admit and close the establishment for management reasons, without prior notice, regretting the inconvenience that these decisions may cause.

These visits are part of the Education and Environmental Awareness program of the Cabildo de Fuerteventura and try to bring closer and publicize the work carried out by this Ministry to the Majorera society and the general public.
