(8/5/2001)

On Wednesday, July 25, Mr. Royal Rowe, Manager of the Four Seasons Resort at Sayan led his Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) "Green Team" on a happy outing to Bali's Perancak beach to participate in the release of baby turtles back into the sea. The PATA Green Team had earlier sponsored 10 turtle nests under the WWF Indonesian Wallacea Program at a cost of Rp. 500,000 (US$50) per nest.

The program rescues fertilized turtle nests from local tourist beaches and markets, incubates the eggs, and eventually releases them back into the sea to help bolster the world's threatened turtle populations. Sponsors of the nests are formally registered with a specific nest, advised of their offspring's progress and invited to the beach once the hatchlings are returned to the seas.

The Bali and Nusa Tenggara PATA Green Team witnessed the release of 45 hatchlings from 9 of their 10 adopted nests. This represented only a portion of the total turtles hatched from the 10 sponsored nests as local villagers had earlier released some of the new-born hatchlings into the ocean.

Ms. Putu Liza, the Communication Officer for the Friends of the Sea Turtle program advises that there are still 10 nests available for adoption. Interested parties can make a transfer to the following bank account:

Widyaskoro Wibhowo/Adopt the Nest

Account No. 302. 000 450 920 901

BNI Branch Renon, Denpasar, Bali


Alternatively, they can also also call: WWF Indonesian Wallacea Bioregion Program at telephone 62-(0)361-247125 or facsimile 62-(0)361-236866.
