Sea Turtle Nesting Season Begins at Eco-resort Rosalie Bay, Dominica

Save sea turtles and 33% on a Caribbean vacation now through October

ROSALIE, Dominica, April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- A spectacular ancient ritual, that dates back to the time of dinosaurs, has begun on the Caribbean's Nature Island of Dominica. Endangered sea turtles are beginning to arrive and nest on the protected black sand beach of Rosalie Bay Resort. In approximately 60 days, the first hatchlings will emerge.

During the annual nesting season, which is now through October, hundreds of sea turtles travel thousands of miles to lay eggs on the same beach where they were born. Three species nest at Rosalie Bay, the giant Leatherback, Green and Hawksbill. Plan a vacation now for a chance to witness the incredible sight of an 800-pound sea turtle crawling ashore to nest or hatchlings smaller than a baby's footprint head out to sea.

Located on the Atlantic coast of Dominica, Rosalie Bay founded the sea turtle conservation efforts on the island more than 10 years ago. The eco-boutique resort provides a protected nesting ground for the endangered species and gathers research to aid in their recovery.

Guests are invited to participate in the sea turtle conservation efforts by helping patrol the beach to protect nesting turtles, assisting researchers in collecting data or watching as they relocate nests that are too close to the ocean to the turtle hatchery, or being "on call" for when baby sea turtles hatch and begin their journey.

Save 33% during Sea Turtle Season

In addition to saving endangered sea turtles, guests who visit during sea turtle season will also save 33% on their stay of 4 nights or more at Rosalie Bay Resort. The special offer is available in all of the resort's 28 rooms and suites, each featuring local hand-crafted hardwood furniture, luxurious bathrooms with rain showers, and patio with views of the garden, ocean or river.

Discounted daily rates start at $150.75 for two, plus tax and service charge. Daily rates include complimentary Continental breakfast, Wi-Fi, yoga classes and nature walks.

For reservations, call toll-free (877) 732-2864 or speak with a travel agent. For more information, visit www.RosalieBay.com.
