BABY TURTLES RELEASE in Cherating

Take part in this once in a lifetime experience. Learn about the endangered turtle species in Malaysia and partake in the releasing of the baby turtles. Your stay in Cherating will be worthwhile with this experience.

Cherating, Pahang is a small resort town on Peninsula Malaysia’s east coast. Limestone hills with lush vegetation on one side and the open sea on the other. Cherating is far from the hustle and bustle of city life. It’s a great place for a weekend getaway as it has something for everybody. From exciting water sports to amazing food or even just watching the sunset, Cherating the best beach getaway you can ask for. You can just relax by the beach and enjoy the sea breeze or explore the natural sights of the mangrove river, Cherating is exceptionally known for its picturesque nature.

Thinking of partaking in a unique once in a lifetime experience while you are in Cherating? Have you ever thought of taking part in turtle hatching? This is definitely something that you should not miss out on while in Pahang.

This once in a lifetime experience helps you understand how turtle conservation is important for the environment. The sanctuary also ensures that you partake in the turtle release program so that you know how to handle a baby turtle and what you can do as an individual to help protect the endangered turtle species, especially in Malaysia.

Malaysia is fortunate to host four species of marine turtles: Leatherback, Green, Hawksbill, and Olive ridley turtles. These gentle reptiles of the sea swim great distances and come on land only to nest. They are known for their longevity among local cultures.

The turtle sanctuary is a turtle conservation center that was set up by the government to research and protect the four main species of turtles that nest in Malaysia. The four species are the Olive-Ridley, Leatherback, Green, and Hawksbill turtles. These turtles are a vital part of the local marine ecosystem but are endangered due to various threats.

Studies show that a turtle can take up to 50 years to mature into adulthood and start reproducing. However, only 5% of turtle hatchlings will actually survive to reach that stage.

Some of the threats that they face include drift nets from fishing boats and marine predators. The turtle sanctuary has a few initiatives aimed at conserving the turtle population including educating the public about these gentle creatures and acting as a hatchery for the eggs.

Various species of Turtles come onto the beach at night to lay their eggs which are then protected from predators (including humans) until they hatch up to 60 days later.

The eggs will lay incubated for about three months in the sand. The hatchlings will break out of their shells and emerge during the moon to make their way to the ocean. The female turtle will come back to the same place, the very beach they are hatched to lay eggs.

Female turtles lay hundreds of eggs each nesting season. But relatively few young survive into their first year. Crabs, monitor lizards, and birds eat the eggs or prey on hatchlings as they make their way out to sea. In the shallows, many more hatchlings are taken by fish. When humans harvest turtle eggs, disturb or degrade nesting beaches, the young turtles’ chances for survival slide further.

They are threatened by the loss of nesting and feeding habitats, excessive egg-collection, fishery-related mortality (for example, accidental mortality in the nets and long-lines of fishing fleets), pollution, and coastal development. Turtles that survive take decades to reach maturity and start breeding. But escalating mortality means fewer turtles are living long enough to reproduce. Effective conservation means protecting turtles at all stages of their life cycle.

Here at the Baby Turtle Release in Cherating, take part in the turtle hatching and releasing them back into the sea. We know it sounds like a dream come true for some wildlife and nature enthusiast.

Once the eggs hatch, the Turtle Sanctuary then keeps the young turtles in small ponds until they are old enough to stand a good chance of survival in the wild before they are released, thus increasing the chances of the babies making it to adulthood and coming back to their birthplace to lay their own eggs in the future.

Baby turtles are kept in ponds to educated adults and kids on the importance of persevering them. You can watch the turtles swim up to you and splash water around by the ponds.

Turtle conservation and awareness play a very important part, especially to the public and the locals.
