If you are lucky you may find yourself swimming next to a turtle - the
bigger they are the older they are, possibly 100 years old - a wonderful sight. They are cautious animal and slow in movement
because they conserve energy, so please do not approach too closely or touch them. When you see a turtle in these waters it is here for
mating and laying of eggs and must not be disturbed. Turtles are an endangered species. They feed on plankton and other surface marine
life and they often found dead due to eating plastic bags which they cannot digest that they mistake for jelly fish, so please do not throw
your rubbish to the sea. Watching turtles as they lays their egg on the beaches has to be extra cautious or else it will disturbs them and they
will go away. Before, turtle were in hundreds but recent years have seen rapid decline in numbers. Perhentian and
Terengganu are the few
remaining sanctuaries for them in the world.
