Projet pour la conservation des tortues marines en Malaisie
Hello everyone, My name is Anaïs, I'm 18 and I'm a first year student at ISTOM, an engineering school in Cergy-Pontoise where I learn how to realise economical, social and agricultural projects in developing countries. As part of my studies, I have to do an internship abroad to understand and take part in the operation of an association or a NGO. I chose the association Juara Turtle Project. It works for the sea turtle preservation, the population's sensitization and research in this area. I appeal to potential donors to show generosity in supporting this beautiful project. a The internship takes place from 08 july to 22 july on Tioman Island in East Malaysia. a Why should sea turtles be protected? a The use of fishing nets is responsible for the capture and death of a large part of the sea turtle population. Egg Collection is an old tradition and practice in Malaysia. The association is conducting an awareness campaign among the island's inhabitants to protect the eggs. Beach development creates more lighting and noise which affects baby turtles by disorienting them as they try to find the sea. Climat change, sea pollution damage marine habitats. The turtles may die by swallowing garbage (plastic bag). The sale of turtle shells is also a threat. My missions in the association : a During 2 weeks, I'm joining the Juara Turtle Project staff. The actions I will lead are the following : -Morning and night beach walk/boat patrols for nesting -Protecting nests and eggs -Helping baby turtles to reach the sea -Collecting data on turtle nesting -Helping staff, cleaning visitors areas -Guiding visitors, sensitize the local population -Feeding injured or disabled turtles -Cleaning the hatchery I really hope this project will move you as much as I do.
