Turtle conservation ande education centre in sarangnan isn't as well known as the other one but I can only advise everyone to go here. The people who volunteer here do a great job breeding and releasing the turtles. The little ones are very cute and it felt great to release them into the ocean; where they belong. I don't support animal captivity and cruelty in any way so it was great to see people with the same states of minds here. There are big turtles that can't return into the ocean, they keep them there and educate people like us :) There was a girl who showed us around and told us all about the turtles and the work they do. Any true animal lover will like this experience. Also, they don't ask for anything, make sure to adopt a baby turtle and make a donation :)

The place is a bit hidden. I went there with my family (with 3 kids), we like make a big round before we reach the place. The kids are really happy to be there. They busy taking picture and touch the turtles.

At first I thought the place is close because nobody there but then there's a guy (forgot his name) who welcome us and start to explain about the turtles. You can pick up the turtle from their cage and take picture with them. Don't know whether the turtle will be stress which so many noise and people pick them up every time? But hopefully no. Because when I went to Gili Trawangan and visited small turtle conservation, they write down a sign not make noise and don't touch the turtles so they won't be stress.

Nevertheless, the guide gave us a lot of explanation about the turtles. We also feed the big turtle. Seems like they were very hungry. You can adopt the small turtle and they will give you certificate, and you can release them to the sea. We chose to adopt the turtle and need to pay 100k rupiah. But if you don't want to adopt them, just give donation will do.

Nice place and give me more explanation about the turtles.

Id been following the Bali Sea turtle page on facebook for months n months. So finding the Turtle Conservation n Ed centre was top of my must do list when we arrived in Kuta in June. Just a small walk from our hotel to the beach and we were there for the experience of a lifetime. The hatchlings were so adorable and knew where they were heading as soon as we hit the beach. Everyone was so excited kids, adults and turtles. These wonderful people are doing a fantastic job, well worth the visit

We went here with a friend of ours who is a Serangan local and the kids were able to adopt and release their own turtles. This is a conservation place with very limited funding. We made a donation while we were there because this is such a good cause. If you are passionate about conservation then this place is a must to visit.
