About the project

Description

Million years ago, turtles were already roaming and thriving in the oceans. At that time, they had little to fear from getting caught in nets set by fishers, or to lose their nesting beaches due to a raising tourism infrastructure or the plundering of their nests for egg consumption. Today, this led to a decrease of the some turtle species or even to their extinction - also in Bali. In 2006 the center opened in order to give them a last chance in being protected from the illegal trade and tourism and getting out in the ocean after recovering. Therefore small or injured turtles are raised in salty-water pools until they finally can be exposed to the ocean again. The Center is an educational experience, not only for university students and visiting school children, but also for everyone involved.
