Educational and fun

This is a terrific afternoon for the children, they line up for a sea turtle which is then released into the ocean. Sometimes it is a long line for the kids to wait in the sun.

Such a shame...

So disappointed but I suppose it can’t be helped...!!

I spent quite a while researching the different places to go and see turtles while staying in Bali. After reading reviews on Turtle Island and Turtle Conservation in Seregan we chose to visit BSTS. We were dropped at the entrance to Kuta beach and walked along and couldn’t see anything... we asked a local information desk to help and he told us we’d see a giant turtle.

On waking back we saw a giant turtle and building covered in tarpaulin. We looked around for a good 10 minutes to find someone to help us but no one was there at all (even though doors were open) we then asked a gentleman sitting on a chair out the front who’s response was no turtles... we only took that to mean it was closed so we left.

I’d looked online and on their FB page and there were updates and images so all looks very professional. On arrival is very dingy and looks a little bit of a mess. They have recently updated their FB to say they do not have any turtles to release for a while... this would have been updated earlier as we traveled to the area to see them. With a place like this communication on online fronts need to be at its best so people are aware of what’s going on and when. Traffic and donations may then be higher...

Worth it!

I had an extremely enjoyable experience at the Bali sea turtle society. It was absolutely the highlight of my trip! I went down most days for the baby sea turtle release 😍 and on my last day I was able to volunteer some time to help dig baby turtles out of the sand as they hatched. This whole organisation is made up of volunteers so I strongly recommend going there buying a t-shirt in supporting this fantastic organisation! Cheers!

Great experience, being able to release baby turtles into the ocean. the society do a fantastic job saving these little creatures.
A small donation is all they request to get a token (donation is optional,but how wouldn't give something). they give a short talk on the turtles and how you will release them.
i took my family and we all had a great time, especially the grand kids.
highly recommended. best to get there at 3.30 or a bit before.

amazing heroes of the environment

These people are real heroes. Not only they protect the sea turtles when laying their eggs, they also ensure the eggs hatch and the little turtles get released at the right time. Wonderful to learn from them

Baby turtle release
Oct 2019
So worth the wait in line to help with the release of a baby turtle. Donations help the work the society do. Follow their face book page for info and release days.

Turtley Awesome

Turned up around 3.45pm and we were told there would be a turtle release at 4.30pm. Great luck on our behalf as this was one of the highlights of our week in Bali. On arrival you give a donation then you are given a token which on a command you hand over and receive your turtle. You are given instructions on how to look after your turtle and then it's a walk across to the beach and on the command over 300 turtles were set free. The society also hand out free stickers and sell a small selection of souvenirs at reasonable prices. If your in Bali try to make time to visit.

Amazing

We actually got to set the baby turtles free. It was such a special occasion. Would recommed although if you dont get there early prepare to queue for a while. Also this place runs on donations so we gave a generous amount but there were people there giving in pennies to set the babies free which i thought was dissapointing.
