With an aim to protect the tiny eggs and thus increase the hatching rates of sea turtles started Kuta Beach Sea Turtle Conservation Programme Started almost 17 years ago. It is one of the best places to visit in Kuta.It was started by Mr. Agung and Wayan with 1 sea turtle nest which was protected with bamboo placed around the nest.There are Turtle Rangers to patrol the beach during the night to give the mother sea turtles safe place on the shore to lay eggs and go back to the ocean. They relocate the eggs to the hatchery at Kuta and wait for the next 45-60 days to get the eggs developed and hatched. When the eggs are hatched, the conservationists will return them to the natural habitat immediately. Highlights: Currently, tourists are also becoming part of the conservation programme hugely as the awareness about protecting these animals has gained prominence around the island. People can join the release of the baby turtles to the ocean so that they can spread the word to others and bring more people in order to be a member of the conservation team and protect more sea turtles like this.In 2012 and 2013, the authorities say that they could collect more than 50000 eggs safely and relocated them to the hatchery. Around 80% of them were hatched and released to the ocean. Timings: The nesting season on the beach is from March to September every year and the hatching season is from April to October. The nesting dates can be altered as the baby turtles will be hatched naturally when they are ready. During the months of June, July, August and September, the baby turtles will be released almost every day.If you visit Kuta during these months, you may be able to take part in this mind blowing social activity. Things to remember: When you visit the conservation centre, try not to touch the baby turtles or not to take photos of them with flashes on in order to protect their eyesight. Location: The beach is located a few minutes away from the Ngurah Rai International Airport in Tuban.
