The idea of the Turtle Commandos program emerged from several reasons. Because of the global situation of the Corona epidemic and the difficulty of foreign tourism; Domestic tourism flourished and this led to the turtle sanctuary being crowded with a large number of visitors who came to watch turtles nest and hatch baby turtles without their knowledge of the instructions and laws of the reserve. In addition to the small number of observers for this large number of visitors, which led to the loss of control over the control and protection of turtles in the reserve in the past two years, and the program seeks to find effective solutions to meet this challenge.
