It's great to see this energy going back into the environment. This Society is doing an excellent job. If you get the chance to drop in, have a look at their hatchling board. The numbers of turtles that are being given a chance is fantastic.

We got here at 3pm paid our donation and received a ticket to release a turtle. We were kept we'll informed and given excellent directions to ensure the turtles were released safely to the sea. Definitely a fantastic experience to take part in.

I found this place casually, I was walking around Kuta beach then I saw the big fake turtle and I was trying to understand what was. It has been incredible because I was there exactly during the born of some little turtles... Wonderful experience!

Turtles are released everyday. However search for their Facebook page for updates and visit Kuta Beach. The activity happens at 4 pm.
