Sea Turtle Package @ Resorts World Kijal

Yeahโ€ผ๏ธ When SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป was travelled to Terengganu, Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ for the squid ๐Ÿฆ‘ jigging festival early this year, she was wishing & hoping for the famous turtles ๐Ÿข๐Ÿข watching ๐Ÿ‘€ย at night ๐ŸŒƒ๐ŸŒŒย in the same state too

Guess what โ“โ‰๏ธ

Her dream came true with the exclusive media invitation ๐Ÿ“ฉ๐Ÿ“ง๐Ÿ’Œ by Resorts World Genting (RWG) ๐Ÿข๐Ÿž๐Ÿš  to witness the circle of life as turtles ๐Ÿข๐Ÿข return to the beach at its Resorts World Kijal (RWK)๐Ÿข๐Ÿ๐Ÿ–, Terengganu, Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ

The amazing ๐Ÿคฉ sight of a mum turtle ๐Ÿขย that ambled up to the beach ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ– to ensure that her next generation ~ baby turtles ๐Ÿข ๐Ÿขย are safely deposited in sand always 1๏ธโƒฃ to cherish. As the turtle ๐Ÿข watching ๐Ÿ‘€ season on Peninsular Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พโ€™s East Coast reaches its peak from May to Sept annually, RWK ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ๐Ÿ–in Terengganu remains as 1๏ธโƒฃ of the best ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป places in Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ to spot & appreciate these majestic creatures on their annual return to the shore ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ๐ŸŒŠ Yeahโ€ผ๏ธ

Being a highโฌ†๏ธ-trafficked area, RWK ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ๐Ÿ– has its own turtle ๐Ÿขย conservation programme in place to ensure the safety of both the turtles ๐Ÿข๐Ÿข & their eggs๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿฅš

2018-09-23 09.46.05.jpg

Yesโœ… , RWKย ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ๐Ÿ–ย ‘s own turtles ๐Ÿข๐Ÿขย hatcheryย ๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿฅš

Regular cleanings (Including annual beach ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ–ย cleanupsssย ๐Ÿ˜€) are done to ensure the beach ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ– is safe for both turtle landings ๐Ÿข๐Ÿขย & its guests’ย  ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซย activities ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

Bravoโ€ผ๏ธย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™Œย RWK ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ๐Ÿ–ย always continue working with the Terengganu Department of Fisheries ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ to seek official protection for its beach ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ & to certify โœ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ“œ its guests’ย  ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซย turtle ๐Ÿข conservation ๐Ÿ’š programme

She ย ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปย was informed by the RWK’s turtle conservation officer named Mr Raguย ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿฝย that turtles ๐Ÿข๐Ÿข usually arrive on Terengganu beaches ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ– from May to Sept, mainly consisting of the common Green Turtle ๐Ÿข aka Chelonia Mydas & the occasionally rare Hawksbill Turtle ๐Ÿข aka Eretmochelys Imbricate. Returning by instinct to the very area that they were hatched๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿข๐Ÿข, the 7.6km beach ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ– at RWK ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ๐Ÿ–ย is 1๏ธโƒฃ of these hallowed places

Despite turtles ๐Ÿข๐Ÿข watching ๐Ÿ‘€, this RWG๐Ÿข๐Ÿž๐Ÿš โ€™s turtles ๐Ÿข๐Ÿขย conservation ๐Ÿ’š efforts @ RWK ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ๐Ÿ–ย also supported by various of its guests’ย  ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ activities,

i. Turtleย ๐Ÿขย Eggsย ๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿฅšย Planting

A proper briefingย ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฅ๐Ÿ‘ฅ๐Ÿ‘ฅ will be provided with the Dos โœ…ย & Don’tsย โŒ, including a demostration by the resort’s turtles ๐Ÿข๐Ÿขย rangers

Bravoโ€ผ๏ธย This is important to ensure all the precious turtle ๐Ÿข eggs ๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿฅšareย all appropriately planted by RWK ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ๐Ÿ– ‘s guests ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซย accordingly

 

Some of the guidance are,

  • Must wear gloves before holding the eggsย ๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿฅš
  • Dig the hole with enough depth for eggsย ๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿฅšย planting (It’s advisable to have between 6๏ธโƒฃ๏ธย to ๐Ÿ”Ÿย eggs๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿฅšin each planting nest)
  • Once hold the egg๐Ÿฅš, not to turn the egg ๐Ÿฅšin any directions
  • Put the egg ๐Ÿฅšslowly on the ground of the hole prepared for turtle ๐Ÿขย eggs ๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿฅšplanting
  • Then, covered the sand, fence up & labelled with date of egg๐Ÿฅšplanting

2018-09-23 10.10.06

For about 3๏ธโƒฃ months, the eggs๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿฅšwill lay incubating in the sand, only for the hatchlings ๐Ÿข๐Ÿขย to emerge during a full moon ๐ŸŒ• & speed their way to the ocean ๐ŸŒŠ

In the years to come, many will return ๐Ÿข๐Ÿข to the very same beach ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ, completing the cycle of life. Of course RWK ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ๐Ÿ– always will be there waiting to welcome them back ๐Ÿข๐Ÿข๐Ÿ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿฅš

ii. Turtles hatchling releasing๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿข๐Ÿขย to the ocean ๐ŸŒŠ

When SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปย has holded up a baby turtleย ๐Ÿขย , she felt touched in her heartย โค๏ธย as only 1๏ธโƒฃย toย ๏ธ3๏ธโƒฃ๏ธย in 1๏ธโƒฃ๏ธk baby turtles ๐Ÿข๐Ÿขย will liveย longย enough after releasing to oceanย  ๐ŸŒŠ

Ohh….Whatโ“โ‰๏ธ

She has blessed kiss ๐Ÿ˜˜ย the baby turtle ~ Little Siennyย ๐Ÿขย ~ to have a safe growing up journey to the sea ๐ŸŒŠ

 

It’s advised to let the baby turtles ๐Ÿข๐Ÿขย to crawling on their own at least short distance from the beach ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ–ย  to the sea ๐ŸŒŠย , it forms part of their growing journey

 

iii. Coconut tree plantingย ๐ŸŒด๐Ÿฅฅ

Hmm…Whyโ“โ‰๏ธ

Coconut trees ๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒด๐Ÿฅฅ๐Ÿฅฅย can live ๐Ÿ’ฏ+ years, producing over thousands of coconuts ๐Ÿฅฅ๐Ÿฅฅย in it’s lifetimeoโ€ผ๏ธย Wowโ€ผ๏ธย ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿคช

  2. wow! you actually got a chance to hold a baby sea turtle! Must be one tick off the bucket list! I feel happy and sad when I see seaturtle eggs cause there’s an island here in the philippines which is currently being developed, to the expense of these sea turtles. The beachfront is being dug to make some buildings and resorts but it is the same beachfront where the sea turtles lay eggs and hatch and I just know that it will destroy the ecosystem there, and cause of greed of certain people it will happen. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    1. Ohh my… thanks for your personal sharing here, itโ€™s really sad ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜” that the development at your home country will affect the beach ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ area where turtles ๐Ÿข๐Ÿข come to lay eggs ๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿฅš

      For sure the ecosystem gets disturbed with it as mother turtles ๐Ÿข๐Ÿข always go back to the same beach to lay eggs ๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿฅš

      Sigh…Hope and pray there will be a petition or appeal against this kind of development ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜‡
