At The Turtle Project, you will get a chance to feed the hatchlings and even release a teenage turtle or a rehabilitated adult one back into the sea in exchange for a small donation. You will notice that depending on the season, a holding tank is filled with baby sea turtles of different species. Part of the proceeds goes to the local anglers for rescuing turtles caught in their fishing nets. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Pemuteran holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the The Turtle Project and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • We arrived at 11.30 hours, actual during the interval of the staff, but they took the trouble to us around. And we were lucky, at the eggs buried in the sand layers, lay a turtle. The other were immediately buried eggs of the same date also viewed and in total there were 12 turtles. Very nice to see. They were put in the water and began to swim immediately. Gorgeous! Don't expect any Zoo or a large scale project, though enthusiastic people from the area who have by this project work and learn that living turtles and a clean environment are important. I found it impressive and heartwarming to see. With the money you pay for access, the project is supported, but actually this is priceless and so important! So go!
