Phuket – Release of hatched young turtles to the sea at Mai Khao Beach on Phuket island to help preserve the endangered species!
This amazing activity is organized during traditional Thai New Year (13-15 April) every year by The Mai Khao Marine Turtles Foundation in collaboration with JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa and its partners.
Mai Khao is one of the few Phuket beaches that continue to welcome nesting turtles. The eggs are rescued from surrounding beaches where the necessary natural and peaceful environment can no longer be guaranteed. They are then given to the Phuket Marine Biological Centre (PMBC) who provide a safe home for the eggs to hatch and the young turtles to gain strength before finding their true home in the Sea in April.
Corporate Groups are more than welcome to join this activity and make a contribution.
Moreover, the foundation is organizing great environmental events like beach and reef cleaning, educational workshops, recycling projects as well as mangrove tree planting that can be added as an enriching CRS activity to your next Incentive!
