Ready, Set….GO!

It’s all kicking off at Melina Beach – since our last post we’ve been so busy there hasn’t even been time to update the blog! Ecofieldtrips is running at full throttle and Australian International School Singapore students have taken over Melina Beach Resort for the last few weeks. The timing could not have been more perfect, we’ve had an abundance of nests delivered to the hatchery! Most of the students were lucky enough to watch the egg relocations, and some even did their part in burying them!

Ecofieldtrips have also added another activity to their Turtle Conservation programme – A nest digging competition!!! After learning more about the biology and conservation of Marine Turtles – the students have to dig their very own nest (they, of course, may lay eggs if they wish) and fashion the mother “sand” turtle next to it! This has proved a fantastic activity and we are blown away by the enthusiam and creativity of the students!
