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.
So far all contributions made via turtle adoptions have allowed us to:
purchase a new underwater camera for our foraging turtle surveys
hire local boatmen to meet stakeholders to maintain relationships
hire local boatmen to transport us between the village and the nesting beach so that we can maintain both bases concurrently
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.
