Lang Tengah Island

Lang Tengah—’The Eagle in the Middle’—a small tropical island off the northeast coast of Peninsular Malaysia, nestled between the more well-known islands of the Perhentians and Redang.

Tanjong Jara Resort

  • “The trash keeps coming”.

Tons of marine debris washed ashore along the coastline during the monsoon season every year, leaving us with this very unsightly view - a stretch of beach swamped with plastic rubbish, driftwood, and discarded materials of all kinds. 

Getting rid of all this trash is not just a day’s work. We try to remove as much as we can every alternate day, categorising them using the Clean Swell app, and sending out those that can be recycled. The most common debris that we picked up were plastic bottles, Styrofoam, and hard plastic fragments. 

Although the bulk of trash may seem overwhelming at times, we are committed to working through the piles and making the beach pristine again!

  • Introducing the newest member of the Lang Tengah team: our Marine Biologist, Cheok Tze Ning aka Ginny!

Ginny holds a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Conservation Biology from Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS). Growing up watching wildlife documentaries on Animal Planet and Discovery Channel, she is highly passionate about conservation and environmental issues. She joined LTTW in 2021 as an intern at the Tanjong Jara project site and explored her passion for turtles. Now, Ginny returns to LTTW as Marine Biologist to further contribute to marine conservation in Lang Tengah Island. Her primary focus in the team will be data analysis to provide critical insights about turtle and coral conservation.

Welcome back Ginny! Let’s protect our marine ecosystem together! 🐢 🌊 🌏

  • Another addition to the LTTW family!

Isandra’s deep-rooted interest in unfolding the mechanics of various ecosystems started when she stumbled upon Dr Seuss’ The Lorax. The journey of venturing down the path of understanding mother nature took her to Universiti Sains Malaysia, where she majored in Environmental Biology and obtained a Bachelors in Applied Biology. Isandra spent much of her time learning about sea turtle ecology in depth while she was working on fungal diversity at a green sea turtle nesting site in Kerachut for her final year research.

You may have seen Isandra before, as she was a former LTTW intern back in 2020. Isandra then went on to work with sea turtles in Pulau Tioman as Sea Turtle Program Officer at Juara Turtle Project. This season, Isandra is continuing her turtle-filled adventures with us and will be working alongside Abidah as Site Co-Manager in Tanjong Jara. 

With ample experience in sea turtle conservation, she brings with her a fun-loving and meticulous take on fieldwork that is sure to bring joy to everyone around her. Best believe by now she can safely conclude that the turtles actually do not carry four elephants and a disc Earth on its back!

Welcome aboard, Isandra! 🐢

  • What a week it has been at our Lang Tengah project site! It is still early on in the turtle nesting season, yet in the span of seven days, we have recorded 3 green turtle nests on our home beach Turtle Bay. From facial photo-identification, two of the three nesting mothers have been identified as new to Lang Tengah. Definitely a good start and we hope to save many more turtle eggs as the season progresses!
