ADOPT A TURTLE
Adopting a turtle is a fantastic way to get involved with and support the project from near or far. By adopting one of our turtles, you will be part of the PTP family, contributing to the improvement and expansion of the project, and ultimately our goal of protecting the local turtles here on the Perhentian Islands.
Our database contains total of 83 foraging turtles and 184 nesting individuals (as of 2019). Below is a selection of frequently-sighted turtles from our database. More information how to adopt a turtle can be found at the bottom of this page.
