Turtles laying eggs on the tip of borneo has traditionally been taken away by local fisherman and sold at the market. Since we had started the resort we have discouraged the fisherman and educated them that turtles should be let to go back to the wild. We announced a program to buy back any turtle eggs if they are harvested and to pay extra if they are left untouched.
At the moment WWF is working in conjunction with us resort operators to build a Turtle hatchery here at the beach.
Watch this space for more news Last but not least I have to thank the couple from Holland who have volunteered to help out on our cause.
