What an amazing project. I got a private guided tour and was able to see nests and today's hatchlings. I released 2 of yesterday's hatchlings into the nursery tank for their maiden swim and then sponsored 2 turtles and went on a boat to a beach to release them.
This project do brilliant work rehabilitating turtles who have eaten plastic, got tangled in nets and been poached for the black market. I was there about 90 minutes. It's free to get in and around £14 to sponsor a turtle and release it. An absolute joy, I highly recommend for anyone with a love for wildlife ❤

Was absolutely fantastic had a guide dedicated to us only, showed us how to handle new born and baby turtles, showed us many turtles hurt and confiscated by police from traffickers, spent about an hour with us we also adopted a baby turtle which we released. They took us by boat to a remote beach to release the turtles was fantastic if you are in Bali a .us do. Cost, free entry adoption A$15, boat ride A$8, best turtle experience ever

THIS PLACE IS OPEN!! Please pay it a visit! The fabulous team here are all volunteers who work all the hours to help the turtles. Any money that is donated goes for food/medication for the turtles or for fuel for the vans that go around the island saving turtles from illegal trade or pick up turtles that have been injured by boat propellers.

Yogi showed us round the conservation centre, he was extremely knowledgeable and was clearly very passionate about the work the centre is doing.

Before COVID the centre used to have 50-70 visitors a week, this is now down to about 5.. so please go and show support! My boyfriend and I adopted two baby turtles for 150,000 IDR each and had the pleasure of releasing them into the wild. What an experience!

As mentioned, the centre like many places in Bali has been hit hard by COVID so visibly the centre isn’t great but that shouldn’t take away from the fact the staff are doing a great job! Every visitor makes a difference. The pools may look small but the turtles are here for a short rehabilitation period so please keep that in mind.

Great place to teach kids about turtles and how charities like this one take care of them.

10/10 if you’re a animal/environment lover.

My son never saw a sea turtle before so we decided to visit this conservation. It is during the pandemic so it was so quiet. No entrance few, but we adopted one baby turtle for IDR 80K. They do great things, saving turtles who are I'll because of eating plastic or got incidents with boats. Some were saved from black markets. My son got a certificate of turtle adoption, it made his day. Worth visit!

The centre and staff really dedicate to the conservation of turtles. Unlike many other places, they do not charge an entrance fee. They fund the place by offering turtles for adoption, where you name a turtle and they release it for you - adoption is completely optional and they do not pressure you in handing over money.

While there is a pool with a few larger turtles that ‘look sad’, the staff explain that those turtles were rescued and are missing limbs or have a broken shell, and therefore cannot be released into the sea. Don’t jump to conclusions, these guys do great work!

Been there around January with my family, such a good place for education about turtle, there are so many turtle from the baby to the oldest turtle. not only turtle, we also can see bat, bird, snake, and other animals. The ticket was IDR 20k, but i'm sure that you come with groups, you will get cheaper price.

Fantastic work happening at this centre. We were shown around by two friendly volunteers who explained how the centre worked and how they looked after the turtles. There were many tanks with turtles either recovering ready to be released or injured turtles being cared for and nursed back to health. The facility was clean and well maintained. There is no entry fee but a donation is well received. Very well worth a visit.

Only a small place and a bit of a drive to get to but well worth it. Donation to enter. One bigger pool then several smaller pools for individual turtles, a hatching area and a little section for small land turtles. Pools looked clean and each staff member i spoke to was passionate about the turtles. They rely mainly on donations and do such a great job rescuing, rehabiltating and then releasing the turtles. It is not hatching season currently so no babies to release but advised a big turtle going to be released tomorrow which will be great to see. They dont allow you to touch or hold the turtles, its not a petting zoo, which is how it should be. Overall pleased i made the effort and worth the trip if you are passionate and animals and especially turtles.

Great visit to see a variety and sizes turtles. It took under 1 hour to get and educational tour so not too exhausting for a little one. You could feed turtles with lettuce. For $15000 rupee you could adopt a turtle and send it out. They were supposed to send out to my whatapps the video of our turtles release to the ocean. However I didnt receive it and I'm sure it was some sort excuse like they got my number wrong or something.

Sad to see the injured turtles caused by idiot humans. Very nice to see people trying to help. The guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. Keep up the efforts.
