  • Amazing place. They walk you through all the steps they take and teach you how the conversation efforts are helping these turtles. If your lucky enough to get there when they have a live batch of hatchling, you can assist in putting them in the water for the first time. You can also adopt a baby turtle for a donation of 150k rp. You get to choose your baby turtle, name it and get an official adoption certificate. Once you've picked your turtle they immediately drive you to the release point to release your turtle. Overall a great experience!
  • Sea Turtle has lost of their nesting beaches or the plundering of their nests for egg consumption. Today, these threats have reached to the level that some turtle species ever closer to the brink of extinction. The rapid decline of sea turtle population is also straining ecosystems around Indonesia where turtles were once abundant and played a key ecological role. I am pleased with what hss been done here to protect and preserve Sea Turtle populations around Indonesia.
  • Great experience. People do an awesome job to save different types of seaturtles here. High recommendation!
  • Really nice. People there are really nice and we stayed a little bus with us. Even tried their local brewed beer! A guide was there, talking our language. Great experience
  • Great conservation work. Visitors get to adopt a turtle and release back to the wild. Great place to bring kids to learn about turtles.
