Our annual sea turtle event is a family friendly event, it is an opportunity to spend a quality time with your family and loved ones on a hot summer day and explore a hidden corner of Phuket island, a tranquil sandy beach preserve of the PMBC. Half the morning is packed with conservation activities including an exclusive tour of the nursery & rescue ponds, an edutainment walk through the conservation trail, and a memorable send off to the 30 sea turtles.

 

The best part is the opportunity to witness one of the most incredible experiences, when our sea turtles set foot on the beach for the very first time and start moving their front flippers up and down when they see the brightest light on the lowest horizon. You may observe that some of the sea turtles might get disoriented and they may take a more circuitous route before turning head-first into the water (if you blink, you might miss it!).

 

We hope you can show support for our sea turtle species in one of these simple ways:
