SEATRU Turtle Lab
Opening Hours
10am to 5pm

SEATRU Turtle Lab at The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort was launched in 2018 to provide sea turtle conservation and to educate guests on the plight of the sea turtle. The lab is managed by The Taaras’ very own marine biologist who works with a team of SEATRU Scientists and trained research assistants from Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT).

 

Guests will be guided through the sea turtle life cycle from nesting and hatching through to species identification, measuring and tagging sea turtles, and understanding natural predators.

 

During the hatching season, guests are able to experience hatchlings being released into the sea.
