Conserve Sea Turtles (seasonal)

luxury family travel Indonesia

Indonesia is a country with the longest coastline in the world and that has tremendous potential in terms of natural resources and the variety of species of wildlife.

There are a total of 7 sea turtle species, 6 of which can be found in Indonesian waters. These species are: Green Turtle, Hawksbill, Olive Ridley, Leatherback, Loggerhead and Flatback.

Several locations on the beaches along Bali island are natural habitats for sea turtles to lay their eggs. Positive action has been shown by the Balinese community in starting activities to protect sea turtles and their nests. So far, the major species found laying eggs in Bali is Olive Ridley turtles. You can help conserve them.

Ways you can help:

  • Observe and record the nesting sea turtles
  • Patrol along the beach
  • Relocate the sea turtle eggs to a safer place
  • Feed the hatchlings
  • Release the hatchlings to the sea
  • Educate the school children and local people on sea turtle protection

When?

The best time to volunteer is during the nesting season, which is between April and August.
