  • We drove there with the bike from the Centre of Sanur. It was a busy road, so it did have have been better with a scooter or a car to go there. The center spot was not always good, but we have found it anyway. At the gate was a volunteer who us kindly greeted and asked what country we came. We were shown around by another volunteer in the center. It was not so great, but he had something to tell for each basin. There were different kinds of turtles, different in color and in size. They even had a turtle with a soft shield. Some Critters were by the police from the hands of the illegal trade were here and then further accommodated and cared for. Some of the critters even had undergone an amputation to survive. Once recovered, they were released back into the sea. Beautiful initiative and we have learnt something from there anyway. Afterwards you are free whether or not to make a donation in a box.

  • Hienoa nähdä käytännössä kuinka kilpikonnia suojellaan. Toisin kuin useissa muissa balin turistikohteissa, täällä kukaan ei kysynyt rahaa. Työntekijät olivat siellä aidosti halusta suojella kilpikonnia. Kilpikonnan poikasen voi adoptoida 150 000 rupialla ja päästää mereen. Näin poikasten selviytymismahdollisuus paranee. Miinusta antaisin rannan kunnosta. Ranta oli täynnä roskia ja muutenkin huonosti ylläpidetty. Suosittelen kuitenkin ehdottomasti vierailemaan täällä jos on kiinnostunut tietämään lisää kilpikonnista!
  • At least a place where you can meet people feeling concerned about environment and biodiversity. You can adopt a turtle and release it yourself in the ocean. Chances of survival are still weak but greater than if the eggs had not been brought to this center.
  • Definitely worth a trip if you like turtles, for 150K you can adopt a turtle and set it free back into the ocean and you get a certificate!
  • Definitely one of our more memorable experiences in Bali - meeting the turtles, and seeing conservation efforts.
  • Couldn't accept the reason why they reject a turtle that even found by fisherman. They talk much about regulation.
