What’s Not Included?
This Ocean Conservation program is located in the South China Sea, an island named Donghai Island, where you can both take care of turtles and know more about dolphins in one week.
The dolphin conservation is mainly to promote the idea of protecting dolphins in schools, helping the local centre to build its dolphin museum, and rebuilding any housing damage from the annual typhoon.
Also, you may have the chance to see dolphin by boat if you are lucky enough!!
There are 5 species of turtles that live in the South China Sea. This program breeds and cares after all of these 5 different species i.e. the:
- and Olive Ridley turtles
There are around 20 disabled turtles living in the centre at one time, and in a separate centre nearby there are several healthy turtles which will be released to the ocean when they recover
At certain times, you may witness the turtle eggs hatching, a beautiful experience, as they are released straight into the ocean when born as nature intended
If you not only love animals but would like to relax with some coastal sunshine and sand, this is the program for you!
