this was one of my bucket list items! I've always wanted to see sea turtles and we got far more than that experience here! all over bali- fishermen find turtle egg stashes and bring them to the turtle education and conservatory to keep them safe and let them hatch there. It's located out on a mini island off bali. You can get there via a small bridge . It's a small center operated entirely by volunteers and is nothing fancy! but we loved it.
it's not touristy and is run by locals. It's completely free but you can make donations to adopt a turtle.
mack thought they were SO funny.
this is the hatching sand pit!
They stay until they are a little bigger and then are released into the wild!
metta was enamoured by their cuteness. as was I, obviously.
and i had to include this picture because their money is INSANE! we constantly had millions of rupiah on us!! SO MANY BILLS!!
