BUBBLES TURTLE AND REEF
Bubbles Dive Resort, established in 2004, is located at Tanjung Tukas Beach, Perhentian (Besar) Island, Malaysia. It is isolated from other connecting resorts on the island with its own private bay, and is surrounded by lush tropical jungle and coral reef. The resort is strategically built behind the jungle and away from the hustle and bustle of the main beach, providing a serene and quiet environment, which also makes it an ideal spot for turtles to nest.
The Bubbles Turtle and Reef Conservation Project was established that same year to help protect the turtles that come to lay their eggs on the resort's beach. The project which has always been solely funded by the resort works to safeguard nesting turtles and their eggs from illegal egg poachers and other threats such as monitor lizards, ants, and crabs -- to increase the chances of hatchlings' safe journey from egg to sea. The project also conducts educational Turtle Talks every night during the open season to cultivate awareness on turtle conservation.
As with all conservation projects, the Bubbles Turtle and Reef Conservation Project requires adequate funding to keep it going. It's operational costs include (but are not limited to) utilities and infrastructure costs, equipment purchases, full-time and on-site facilitator salaries, and intern salaries.
The Bubbles Dive Resort team is and always will be fully committed towards supporting the Turtle and Reef Conservation Project, but we cannot do it on our own. We need and welcome all the help we can get.
