  • Not for conservation. Let them go they'd be better trying to live in the ocean. These are in a shallow bath water causing disease most had eye infections. They try to get the tourists in to sell them trips that's all this place is. A poor excuse to make money from tourists whilsts torturing these poor creatures feeding them on fish instead of sea grass and a natural diet..Wrong!...It needs getting rid off and shouldn't impress anyone!
  • This is an amazing initiative to ensure the survival of these baby turtles. I see a few reviews bashing this place saying that this hatchery should not be supported, that in itself is idiotic. Anyone who knows anything about turtles and sea life would know that 90% of new born turtles don't make it past their first month out in the ocean. These baby turtles are kept in this nursery until they are the size of your hand, just big enough that most predictors can't swallow them, this gives these turtles a better chance at survival. This place is awesome!
  • saving turtles 👌 leave a little tip and they organize pretty good and cheap snorkeling tours too
  • The place was amazing, masyaAllah. But when you plan to visit there, get more info about fast boat ticket and small things that can cost you more money..
  • ABSOLUTE DISGRACE - DO NOT FUND THIS ATROCITY!!!!!!!!!!!! I visited Gili Trawangan Turtle Hatchery this afternoon and haven't been able to stop thinking about the poor little turtles that are being kept there since. Swimming desperately to the edge of their tanks, looking out towards the beautiful ocean, their home... and going absolutely nowhere. None of them looked healthy and many had eye infections, missing fins and some were barely moving at all. It is crucial that turtles go straight into the ocean after hatching for their survival and this place is using 'conservation' as their disguise to detain them in small tanks to 'make them stronger' when really they just want to make money from tourists. Baby turtles should not be made into a tourist attraction and it should not be allowed to make money out of these poor defenceless creatures who have such a hard life as it is. I don't see how anybody could enjoy seeing such magnificent creatures in such depressing circumstances. It is so easy to rent a snorkel and go and see them for yourself in the ocean! They even claimed to be housing Olive Ridley Turtles!!!!!! These are only found nesting in Mexico!!!!!!! Absolute disgrace. I am appalled that this is even allowed to take place. Please do not give your money to these people and visit Gili Eco Trust instead who do excellent conservation work.
