Marine Turtle

Turtle Tracks
There are around 20 different species of turtle inhabiting both the Malaysian land and water. Sadly, nearly all of these species of turtle are now considered to be endangered species, mainly due to hunting of both the turtle and the turtle's eggs.

The majority of Malaysia's turtles inhabit the east coast and its many islands. Therefore, a great deal of the Malaysian turtle conservation happens here. There are numerous beaches set up all around the Terengganu (south east) area, including Juara beach on Tioman island, which has one of the newest protected beaches.

Turtle Swimming
For the month of November the One World Hotel in Petaling Jaya is fund raising for the turtles in support of WWF-Malaysia's efforts to protect the turtles.

To raise money, handmade turtles stuffed with lavender are being sold at approximately £2.60 with a third of the money being put towards protecting Malaysia's precious turtles.
