Laguna Phuket has supported sea turtle conservation programs in Phuket since 1994. Our efforts focus on raising funds and awareness in support of the Phuket Marine Biological Centre (PMBC) and the Royal Thai Navy.
Local conservation programs predominantly include Green Sea Turtles (Chelonia mydas), Olive Ridley Turtles (Lepidochelys olivacea) and Hawksbill Turtles (Eretmochelys imbricate). Another species found in this region is the Leatherback Turtle (Dermochelys coriacea).
We believe that in an ideal world humans should be able to thrive without disturbing the habitats of sensitive species like the sea turtles. Part of our environmental conservation is about us humans learning to live in better harmony with all other life on Earth. We are always striving for improvements to make our annual sea turtle release event more fun and meaningful.
Our knowledge partner, PMBC, has put a lot of resources into the nurturing and caring for all turtles. The food and medicine alone costs 8,000 Baht per turtle per year. These are the costs for their care before we can release them.
