The Berau region in northeast Borneo hosts the world’s eighth-largest hatching grounds for the green turtle. In cooperation with local conservationists, we seek to protect green turtles, directly and effectively, at the beaches where the hatching takes place. We are engaged in training local schoolchildren and adults as well as tourists. We believe in education and community development to help minimize the illegal sale of turtle products, e.g. eggs intended for human consumption or shells used mainly to produce jewelry.
