2020 – the year where all things came to a standstill due to Covid, I was blessed with the opportunity to experience turtle conservation work on Lang Tengah Island, when the project was unexpectedly revived, after a near 3-month halt due to the pandemic.


A brief summary will not do justice to the amazing experience I received. Living at the campsite, Turtle Bay, meant being surrounded by forest & waking up to blissful sounds of crashing waves daily. It was during the long night patrols where I learnt valuable hands-on experience working with turtles.  As a novice in the field, I was truly lucky to be able to apply theoretical knowledge to practice with 3 mother turtles and relocating their eggs to our campsite. I’ve also gained insights into coral conservation works. Brushing and cleaning growing coral fragments underwater at the nurseries brought diving to a higher purpose.


Aside from working hard, the days are fun-filled with forest trekking, snorkeling, beach cleaning, cliff jumping, or simply chilling around Turtle Bay, soaking in the beauty of Nature with a book.


Lang Tengah project – one needs to simply experience it for oneself to know the true value! The effort & dedication of the team, the work they tirelessly do to protect the lives & habitat are highly commendable. It may not be luxurious, but your heart will certainly be filled with contentment upon leaving.

Exciting news ahead! We are thrilled to announce that Lang Tengah Turtle Watch is migrating to Persatuan Pemuliharaan dan Kajian Marin Malaysia (Marine Conservation and Research Organisation Malaysia), also known as PULIHARA.

At PULIHARA, we are committed to continue with the conservation efforts that were previously carried out under LTTW with the same dedication, commitment and focus.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and assure you that we are working tirelessly to ensure a smooth migration process.

We invite you to join us on this journey of transformation! Please visit our new website at puliharamalaysia.org to learn more about our mission and how you can get involved.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication to our cause. Together, let's create a meaningful change and leave a lasting legacy for future generations.

Warm regards,
