Welcome sea turtle hatchlings

On the evening of Thursday, September 22, 2022, we welcomed the latest sea turtle hatchlings to Atlantis. A clutch of 58 green sea turtle hatchlings emerged from their sandy nest to take in the night air.

The nest was laid by one of our resident turtles on the night of August 2nd, and hatched just shy of the average 60-day incubation period.

back to nature

These hatchlings will be cared for by the Atlantis aquarium team for two to three years to give them a better chance of survival when they are released into the wild.


Green sea turtles are listed as an endangered species according to the World Conservation Union (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species and protected by the government of The Bahamas.

making a difference

Atlantis is proud of our successful program to breed and release these turtles to help increase wild population numbers.


Atlantis has bred, rescued, and released more than 7,500 endangered sea turtles as part of our continuing commitment to marine conservation and education.
