First hatchlings of the year! These babies coming from nest 01 and 03 that were nested on 17 Jan 2022.
We were doing nest check on day 75(!!) when we rescued these babies from ants. To date, we are on our 85th nest, expecting more to come. Things are getting hectic now at the station and we need your help! Come join us in our UMT-MMS Volunteer Program 2022 to help out saving more turtles.
P/s: literally need to mute the video because of all the excited noise🥳...
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.
