Turtle Conservation And Education Center
The Turtle Conservation And Education Center provide a a fantastic opportunity for tourists, where you adopt a baby turtle for a small donation then release the turtles together onto the beach so they have a chance to reach the water and survive. The releases are done almost daily at around 4pm and over-watched by friendly, knowledgeable and passionate volunteers.
TCEC is a part of the comprehensive strategy to eradicate illegal turtle trading on the island. Established on a land of 2.4 ha, the TCEC is trying to support the community and find an alternative to the illegal turtle business. The center put a lot of work into providing education, tourism, conservation and research with a liberal sprinkling of business to protect and give turtles a chance to survive. TCEC is supported by WWF, Governor of Bali, the major of Denpasar, municipal authorities, the Provincial Nature Resource Conservation Agency and the local community.
