The Perhentian Turtle Project (PTP) was established in 2015 for research and conservation of green turtles (nesting and grazing) in the Perhentian Islands. We work closely with the local Department of Fisheries to reduce illegal harvesting of turtle eggs from protected beaches. More importantly, we also record morphometrics data and conduct photo-identification surveys to compile a baseline database for research since only few studies have been conducted in the past.

We conduct turtle photo-identification surveys at Teluk Pauh to understand the local turtle population density and distribution.

We manage the local turtle hatchery and conduct night patrols at Tiga Ruang for research and conservation.

We respond to turtle strandings and deaths around our waters to determine the cause and threats to the island population.

We collaborate with the Perhentian Marine Research Station and the Perhentian Eco-education Project to organise turtle awareness talks and activities within the local community.
