Background

Turtle is one of the marine creatures that decreases every year. This is caused by illegal hunting, turtle egg theft and damage to the marine ecosystem.

In Lombok itself, the fate or life of sea turtles is no less tragic than other turtles in other places. Excessive turtle egg hunting threatens the survival of turtle living in the future.

So, don’t be surprised, if one day our children and grandchildren will only see turtles in a storybook.

Then should we just be quiet?

In Lombok Hidden Trip, we care about the conservation of turtles and their habitat. In collaboration with the turtle observer community and Natural Resources Conservation Center, we support the breeding activities.
