It's great to see this energy going back into the environment. This Society is doing an excellent job. If you get the chance to drop in, have a look at their hatchling board. The numbers of turtles that are being given a chance is fantastic.

Turtles are released everyday. However search for their Facebook page for updates and visit Kuta Beach. The activity happens at 4 pm.
