Turtles at Tulap

During a visit to North Sulawesi in early October one of our Hong Kong volunteers, Dr Merrin Pearse, had the pleasure of seeing Olive ridley turtle hatchlings (Lepidochelys olivacea) making their way to the sea.

This is a Project of The Masarang Foundation (www.masarang.org) at Tulap beach in North Sulawesi, a place which is amazingly visited by five species of sea turtle.

The students from Island School in Hong Kong can be proud of their superb efforts in raising funds for the hatchery enclosure which has kept many turtle eggs safe and enabled scenes likes this to happen on many nights.

Though there is still so much more work that could be done at the site to further protect the turtles. If you would like to donate funds towards this project please contact us.
