We are initiating a community group in the Perhentian Islands. The community group will focus on developing cottage industries to enable the villagers to benefit from the millions of Ringgitt Malaysia being spent in the islands each year. A secondary focus will be creating a sense of stewardship amongst the villagers and their islands, with a key topic being sea turtle conservation. Three out of four sea turtle species are virtually extinct in Terengganu and only the Green turtle has a significant population, but their population has declined by more than 80% since the 1950’s.
