Our visit to bintan
Our Visit To Bintan

  • In July 2009, Kathryn, James and Andrew Collins went to a place in Indonesia called Bintan.

  • We went to an area (fenced off) that a green turtle had laid its eggs (about 100).

  • The Conservation People check for turtle nests every morning and move any nests to the conservation area for safety.

  • The conservation area was fenced off from the public.


Nests and eggs
Nests and Eggs

  • They check the nests daily and monitor nest temperature. The nest temperature is important in determining the gender of the turtles.

  • The eggs were underground and when they hatched they were counted, measured, put in a bucket, taken outside and released. There were a hundred baby turtles in the nest we saw.
