Big Pom Pom Resort Turtle Hatchery, Sabah


Be the first to review

Pom Pom Island is an important feeding and nesting ground for green (Chelonia mydas) and hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricata) sea turtles. Here, sea turtles nest year round with a peak from June to September. In Sabah, sea turtles are protected by law, but unfortunately, poaching of turtle eggs is still a big threat to turtle populations. Pom Pom Island Resort, in association with WWF-Malaysia and Sabah Wildlife Department, works to protect these amazing creatures. During the camp, you will learn how to recognize and monitor a sea turtle nest, relocate eggs in our sea turtle hatchery, release hatchlings and much more.
