Lang Tengah Turtle Watch

After Founder, Hayati Mokhtar, sought help from friends, WWF conservation specialists and Terengganu state government officials, the Lang Tengah Turtle Watch was born. With enthusiastic interest from local Malaysian volunteers and students from the Universities of Cambridge, Birmingham and University College London, by April 2013 the project was underway.

Since the project began it has grown steadily: to date saving over 150,000 turtle eggs from being sold to the market; removing over 18,500kg of rubbish from beaches and reefs;  and saving nearly 800 fragments of coral (data as of December 2022). 

Along the way, LTTW has hosted in excess of 460 volunteers from 23 different nationalities, and conducted programmes with over 7,000 local school children.
