To conceive, a male and female turtle must mate for up to 72 hours. By the breeding season, each mother turtle can produce from 8 to 11 nests, each nest 70 to 200 eggs. Although it has a lifespan of more than 30 years, the survival and maturity rate of this animal is quite low, only approximately 1 / 1,000. This is one of the reasons that sea turtles are listed on the list of endangered wildlife.
Because of this rarity and vulnerability, in 2007, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) established a Marine Turtle Conservation Program that aims to protect animals that have existed on Earth more than 220 million. year. The volunteer program to protect sea turtles at Con Dao National Park is one of the activities to raise awareness of people about this rare animal.
