We adopted a baby turtle!
Nov 2021 • Family
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!

Educational center where you can appreciate turtles taken care of.
Jun 2021
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!

Good for Education
Jan 2020
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.

Great Work and dedicated staff
Feb 2020
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.

Great place helping save the turtles
Mar 2020 • Solo
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.

Quick visit, free and could help sponsor a turtle
Mar 2020 • Family
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.

Turtle Rescue and Rehab Facility
Jan 2020
A nice small place on Seragan, to see several species of turtles rescued and under rehab. 30 minutes to review the entire place with no admittance charge just a request to donate something to the cause.
They are expanding to include nesting areas.
A nice break in the day and you can get up close to the turtle tanks.

Educational! Amazing volunteers - donate if you can!
Jan 2020
So glad we read the reviews and chose this for our turtle visit. Some sad stories written up about rescues, and graphic images shown on photos, but so educational. Very relaxed, sign in, no fees, a guide meets you and walks you around the educational boards then you're free to roam around inside where rescue turtles are in tanks. Hope the "turtle ceremonies" are weaned out of the Balinese culture. Shame on anyone eating turtle eggs or meat!
