Turtle conservation

I found these cute lil babies on an island off Terengganu, a state on the East coast of Peninsular Malaysia. These are baby green turtles hatched under the conservation programme by the resort island owners.  Once the mother turtles lay their eggs on the island, the carers remove the eggs to safer hatchery grounds on the beach to protect them from natural predators.  Once hatched, the babies are kept in a seawater pool until old and big enough to survive on their own in their natural habitat.
