WHO

The Perhentian Turtle Project (PTP) was officially established in 2015 as a sea turtle research and conservation initiative under Fuze Ecoteer Outdoor Adventures Sdn. Bhd. in the Perhentian Islands Marine Park. We work in close collaboration with the local community, stakeholders, Department of Fisheries (DOF) and Marine Parks Division. Our work includes kayak surveys, nightly beach patrols, sea turtle stranding responds, and awareness campaigns.

WHAT

AIM

WHERE

PTP is currently based in two places: Kampung Pasir Hantu (Fisherman’s Village) on Perhentian  Kecil and Pantai Tiga Ruang (Turtle Beach aka the nesting beach) on Perhentian Besar.

Besides the nesting beach, we conduct surveys at Teluk Pauh, the seagrass bed that serves as a green turtle feeding site.
