Speeding Up a Turtle’s Safe Journey
In line with our commitment to biodiversity conservation, the group launched Sanctuary, Shangri-La's Care for Nature Project.
At Golden Sands Resort, Penang, we have the Turtle Care Project which aims to create awareness on turtle conservation and increase the survival rate of turtle hatching. Onsite, the Eco Centre is a spacious edutainment venue where resort guests and visitors have the opportunity to learn about the conservation of turtle species and environmental protection through informative displays.
Turtle conservation efforts are supported by a variety of activities that involve guests and local schoolchildren. These activities include story-telling sessions, craft-making sessions with discarded hotel recyclables and interactive learning sessions with the Department of Fisheries and environmental NGOs, including the Malaysian Nature Society and Reef Check Malaysia. Through these fun educational activities, children learn that the small actions they take contribute to making a difference on a larger scale.
