Travel To Tourism Melaka

Hello again. On 5th December 2006 ago, i'm and TV crew from RTM (National TV of Malaysia) shooting at Turtle Management Centre, Padang Kemunting, 78300 Masjid Tanah, Melaka for next year tourism video program. That day was a first time in my life touching the turtle. He..He..He..

'The TV Crew with their turtle eggs'

The Turtle Management Center monitors the appearance of turtles in the area,ensures that the eggs are not stolen,and that the turtles are able to hatch their eggs in safely. Eggs take 45-65 days to hatch. As their numbers have been declining the Turtle Management Center undertakes great effort to save these turtles from extinction.

Marine turtles are unique marine creatures,categorised as reptiles. There are seven species of marine turtles in the world,and four of these species land and lay their eggs on Malaysian beaches but only one species land in Melaka beaches - The Hawksbill Turtle. The four species of marine turtles found in Malaysia are the Leatherback turtle,Hawksbill turtle,Green turtle and Olive Ridley turtle. During the hatching season between March and September, lucky visitors get to release baby turtles into the sea.That its for today. Save Our Turtles Today!.
