The moment everyone has been waiting for is finally here!!!
Registration for our 2021 Volunteer Program officially opens today! You can now book your sea turtle conservation adventure through our website!
Same great Adventure:
- One-week hands on experience working closely alongside SEATRU’s dedicated staff protecting nesting sea turtles at the Chagar Hutang Turtle Sanctuary on Redang Island in Terengganu, Malaysia
- RM500 for all Malaysian students and RM800 for public individuals (local/international)
What has changed this year:
- Registration, including payments can be made online via our website. Visit our website under the Volunteer Program tab, and read through our guidelines on how to book before registering!
- We have increased the number of pax per week, now up to 12 volunteers can stay at the research station each week (so that more of your friends can share the fun)!
At this time, due to the continuing CMCOs and RMCOs across the nation, we would still like to advise our Malaysian volunteers outside of Terengganu state to book their time slots from June onward, due to urgent travel restrictions.
If you have any other questions or concerns, you may reach us at our website under our Contact Us tab!
We are ready to safely and comfortably host our volunteers, and can’t wait to see you all at Chagar Hutang Turtle Sanctuary!...
Meet our new merchandise from the BatiKita series, a Year Friendly Planner.
We have been collaborating with Pusat Pemulihan Dalam Komuniti (PPDK) from Wakaf Tapai, Terengganu since October 2019 to produce our BatiKita products, including headwear, fashion accessories and handbags, and now we are introducing a yearly planner! This collaboration not only contributes to our sea turtle research and conservation efforts but also helps the special needs community earn a living.
In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, PPDK is facing a decline in sales, which affects the livelihoods and financial independence of the special needs community. However, their spirit of creativity and innovation never fades and we deeply appreciate their efforts and insight in helping us create new merchandise. We love the beautiful turtle batik design on the cover of this planner, as it showcases the craftmanship of PPDK, whose hard work and attention to detail are evident in every stitch making each piece of the merchandise personal and unique.
If you feel these efforts deserve to be continued, get a BatiKita Limited Edition: Year Friendly Planner by clicking the link in our bio....
A long-term tagging and nesting study of green and hawksbill turtles in Chagar Hutang, Redang Island was initiated in May 1993. This long-term project will provide basic, yet vital information on the population sizes, monitor yearly population fluctuations, study reproductive and nesting behaviour, and determine the success of “in-situ” and relocated nests.
