OceanNEnvironment’s Turtle Nest Adoption & Research Program

HELP STOP This Turtle CARNAGE in Asia!

 Support the Turtle Nest Adoption & Research Program

OceanNEnvironment turtle program support resorts in Indonesia and Malaysia - adopting the nearest village, integrating the people - village cultural nights for the tourists and training locals to sell their handicraft , both sustainable resources.

 The Mechanics

1.     The resort will provide the facilities and the manpower to monitor turtles, supporting scientists in a tagging program and data base, as well as taking care of the security of the nests.

2.  Installing the Program - setting up facilities for scientists to stay and teach   the local to participate in the tagging program.  OceanNEnvironment will be coordinating the program in this aspect - database, educational literature for divers.

3. Support from the village is important- the people must be aware that by guarding the eggs - more tourists will come to the island - the ready sale of eggs, without even the need to dig for them. OceanNEnvironment bring in scientist to educate the local.. Our scientist train the local to maintain records database for turtles.

 4. We lobby for ban turtle meat consumption in Bali through our pro-active members.
