BACKGROUND
INFORMATIONS
Near Segari, not far from Pulau Pangkor is a turtle farm: Pusat Penetasan Penyu. Turtles in Malaysia are still reasonable common. That is to say, they are still to be found in the wild. There are two kinds of turtles in Malaysia: land and marine turtles. I have seen them when diving at Pulau Sembilan, not far from the Turtle Management Center. That said, turtles are in danger. And stations like the Turtle Management Center are essential in protecting this amazing and ancient animal.

The farm in Segari is specialized in marine turtles. There are 7 species of Marine turtles in the world. 4 of them lay their eggs on the Malaysian beaches. These are: the leaderback turtles, hawksbill turtle, olive ridley turtle and the green turtle.

Pasir Panjang Beach near Segari is the main breeding ground for these turtles in Perak. Since turtles are an endangered species, the Malaysian Department of Fisheries have set up a project to help the turtles to survive the threats of extinction. This excellent initiative all started in 1990.

There are quite a few dangers in the life of the turtles apart of the natural ones. Fishing is one of the dangers, spoiled oil and rubbish in the sea is another one. Turtle eggs are still delicacy for many people who do not care the value of a living endangered species.
