Tahaa turtles have a savior in their midst: Leo Morou, center founder, rescues turtles caught in fishing nets, caring for them until healthy enough to be set free. Children, especially, will enjoy their visit here.

I learned quite a bit about the turtles...but the best part was feeding them! (10:30am every day). What a wonderful thing for Le Meridan to have on their property. Of course there is a gift shop- but proceeds help the turtles. This is something appropriate...More
