What an amazing surprise during our morning walk! We discovered turtle footprints on the beach, 50 meters from Dajuma. Turtles usually come at night to leave their eggs. Unfortunately the reptile’s nest was already empty. Despite their protected status, turtles eggs are still collected for food or rituals. This sad discovery reminds us how useful is Perancak Conservation Center who saves eggs and protects babies’ turtles until they are strong enough to face the ocean. Sensitization is still a necessity.
Hopefully we will be the first to find and save the eggs next time!
