Kem Si Penyu (Turtle Camp)

Kem Si Penyu (Turtle Camp)

Turtle Camps called “Kem SiPenyu” for the children of the fishing village at Redang Island are held during the nesting season. Sponsored by Berjaya Redang Beach Resort, the children, aged 10 to 12 are given a treat at the Resort before going to Chagar Hutang beach in small groups of about twenty per session to spend two days and one night on the beach. Here, they learn about sea turtles and the need to conserve them in a “fun” and informal manner – watching nesting activities and emergence of hatchlings, painting turtles and engaging in turtle learning activities. SEATRU believes very strongly in education at the grassroots level.
