As the nesting season rocks on.. we have a few more nests than sponsors!
The JTP nest sponsorship program is an effort not just for fundraising, but to show an alternative for selling eggs on the market. We aim to show that sponsoring the nests for protection can help generate as much or more income than selling eggs for consumption. In this way the nest sponsorship model can be easily implemented by other local chalets and resort operators. So please help us to help the Sea Turtles and sponsor a nest today!
RM200 per sponsorship,
After the nest hatches, we will send you photos of that nest, and some information about how many eggs, what species, and how many babies hatched.
Email us for info, or to make payment by bank transfer,
0r you can PayPal direct to firstname.lastname@example.org !
Some July turtle project action:
A tourist event for an evening baby turtle release, in front of JTP.
The mixer crew, cooking up some good cement for Jo’s tank’s final floor.
Floating the final floor smooth in Jo’s new tank
The new “this is a nesting beach” sign, near the beginning of Mentawak Beach
Some boat oil washed up on Juara Beach’s side.
Picking up the oil before the late morning sun turns it all to liquid again.
Measuring some fresh tracks at Munjor Beach
Collecting the eggs, on the same day, from the new nest on Munjor.
Some babies just hatched, we are getting ready to collect, measure and release them.
Some photos from June
Here is a video we made mostly for fun but also for showing some of the staff and volunteers in a place of their choice and picking something to say. Hope it helps to show about the project to any of you thinking to volunteer or visit!
Here is a recent hatchling release with some students staying with Little Planet, volunteers and tourists staying nearby in Juara,
a newly hatching nest getting paparazzied by attentive volunteers,
a small group watching some babies head out to sea,
and the inspection and measurement of nest #11 as it hatches!
