The Kelonia Marine Turtle Observatory is an institution dedicated to the study and preservation of Reunion's marine turtle species. Kelonia has a number of rooms full of exhibits about turtles that you can walk through at your leisure, as well as indoor and outdoor tanks in which you can watch the turtles swim around. One of the highlights is an albino turtle that they have in one of the outdoor tanks.

In addition to marine turtles, Kelonia also has an outdoor area which features two species of land tortoises.
