“There has been a strong effort to educate the villagers to protect and conserve these endangered animals. We wanted to do our part to shelter the turtle eggs and play a big role in helping to regenerate the population in Indonesia”, commented Craig Seaward, general manager of the W Retreat Bali.
There are still three areas where Green Turtles have laid eggs which the W Retreat is protecting. The last turtle release was shortly after they opened in March 2011 when 49 Green Turtles were released in August that year.
