Discover the Turtle Island Park a Haven for Turtles

A promising future for sea turtles in Malaysia.

The magnificent Turtle Islands Park in Sabah are one of the most successful conservation parks in the world. Under the protection of Sabah Parks, Park Rangers record each turtle landing, nesting, egg and hatchling numbers to document and safeguard the islands as an ecological paradise for turtles. The island also permits visitors (under strict capacity laws) to stay overnight and observe the complete lifecycle of turtles, which in turn helps fund the conservation movement on the islands.
