    Turtle Island (Sandakan, Malaysia)

    Sabah Parks has created a marine park around three islands in the Sulu Sea about 40 km North of Sandakan, which are important areas for the breeding of the Green Turtle. During the breeding season the turtles come up onto the beach to lay their eggs. Left to nature, some of the eggs would be destroyed before they hatch, or the hatchlings would not make the journey to the water without being eaten by predators. Sabah Parks has stepped in to assist the Green Turtle population to establish itself again after reaching danger levels. The Park rangers remove the eggs from where they are laid and take them to a hatchery where they are hatched. The hatchlings are then returned to the sea under the watchful eye of the rangers.
