Its an excellent Idea and a great cause. Donations are compulsory but at the end of the day its small change and it goes towards a good cause. It is educational and promoted the survival of turtles. You can get up close and personal and...More

Turtles are blind Poorly treated This place should be either upgraded and the turtles actually cared for properly or knocked down Just a money making scheme

Nice small place to save the turtles. You will find the place in the middel of mainstreet of Trawangan. Nice people. You can see there work when you start snorkling.
