Baby turtles hatch at EGA Al Taweelah beach
United Arab Emirates: Every year, critically endangered Hawksbill turtles visit the shorelines near EGA’s Al Taweelah facility to lay eggs. In 2019, our sustainability team continued conservation efforts for this species and monitored the successful hatching of almost 400 baby turtles that subsequently made their way to the sea.
The team also rescued a number of sick turtles which were brought back to good health and released back to the sea thanks to the Dubai Turtle Rehabilitation Project.
Since 2011, nearly 100 Hawksbill turtles have laid eggs at our shorelines with almost 7,000 baby turtles starting their lives at Al Taweelah.
