Saving Sea Turtles in Borneo
Travel to Borneo and participate with a turtle nesting and land coral reef conservation project. The dual focus of this project is to renovate the coral reefs that have been badly damaged due to 45 years of fish bombing and to help protect the endangered Green and Hawksbill Turtles. The turtles come to the island from May to September to nest. Working on this Island Coral Reef Conservation and Turtle Nesting project will help to increase the number of pelagic fish in the area.
