Public Viewing Lab

SEATRU has collaboration with Berjaya Corporation since 1993 to sustain sea turtle conservation effort on Redang Island. Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Vincent Tan, the owner of the Berjaya Corporation has supported this effort by establishing a public viewing laboratory, dubbed the “Turtle Lab” at The Taaras Beach and Spa Resort. The laboratory is the first of its kind in Malaysia, and allows in-house guests the chance to witness sea turtle conservation first-hand during their vacation at Redang.
