Why is this interesting for me?

Volunteer Program

It was developed to provide volunteer assistance to the long-term monitoring, tagging and in-situ egg incubation research and conservation project for sea turtles at Chagar Hutang Turtle Sanctuary, Redang Island. This unique program will give you the chance to get up close with the ancient sea turtles (the green and hawksbill turtles) and other wildlife in their natural habitat.
