No other place in Africa concentrates such a large number of green turtles nesting as the island of Poilao. Up to 40,000 specimens of this threatened and gigantic species, which can exceed 200 kg. weight, they come, every season, to this piece of land to build nests where they can lay their eggs.

It is a tiny island that, despite its size, is an ecosystem with life as abundant as it is varied. There, everything from the palm vulture and the African monitor to African squirrels, weaver ants, chameleons and birds as unique as turacos and sunbirds coexist.
