Hawksbill Turtle Release

Yesterday, we had another large batch of baby turtles arrive, this time we had Hawksbill baby turtles with a good hatch rate of 121 out of 128 eggs!  All were released as soon as it was dark with help from our lovely guests who walked down the beach with us to a suitable location away from any artificial light.

Not wanting to rest, Raimond and Aman went out again last night with some of our Italian guests and found another Hawksbill on the beach laying eggs, this time 90 eggs were relocated to the new hatchery so hopefully more babies soon.

    That’s a very good survival hatch rate! Hope Hawksbill turtles will become the common guest in sea of Sabah.
