In line with our commitment to biodiversity conservation, the group has Sanctuary, Shangri-La's Care for Nature Project.
At Shangri-La Golden Sands, Penang, we have the Turtle Care Project, which aims to create awareness of turtle conservation and increase the survival rate of turtle hatching. On-site, the Eco Centre is a spacious edutainment venue where resort guests and visitors can learn about the conservation of turtle species and environmental protection through informative displays.
Turtle conservation efforts are supported by various activities involving 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. Through these fun educational activities, children learn that the small actions they take contribute to making a difference on a larger scale.
