Rare Turtles Get a Second Chance on Life on a Bali Beach

Bali Hai Cruises and Local Conservation Groups Release a Thousand Turtles on a Western Shore in Bali.


Bali Hai Cruises in cooperation with Kurmah Asih's Turtle Adoption and Conservation Program recently released more than 1,000 turtle hatchlings on Pranjak Beach in west Bali.

Turtle eggs collected by fishermen from beaches where they would not have survived left unattended were brought to Kurmah Asih's turtle hatchery where the fishermen were rewarded for their efforts. At the hatchery careful care of the incubating turtles and neo-natal care for the hatchlings is provided by a group of workers and scientists.

Funded by Bali Hai Cruises, the operators of a number of popular day-cruise products, and from contributions from guests - the money is used to pay fishermen who gather the eggs and provide salaries for workers at the turtle hatchery. All data concerning collections, hatchings and re-release into the oceans is carefully recorded for analysis by Conservation International.

Once the baby turtles are released back into the sea, they face a challenging journey of 20 years before they return to the shore to lay their first batch of eggs.

Encouraging signs have been found in the form of modest increases in the number of turtles returning to shore to lay their eggs. This is especially heartening given the threats of fishing nets, climate change and the pollution of our oceans with which the turtles must contend.

If you would like to learn more about the turtle release program or participate in a "turtle release cruise" contact Bali Hai Cruises at telephone +62-(0)361-720 331.
