    An accredited Level 3 Marine Animal Rescue/Conservation/Zoology/Biology/Ichthyology/Sea Turtle Diploma course is included with this practical placement. This turtle conservation practical project aims to promote more comprehensive understanding and protection of the population of sea turtles around the beautiful tropical Perhentian Islands.

    Students have the opportunity to assist local government and researchers with the collection of scientific data. This is gained by snorkelling and taking photos of turtles, the scales on the flippers and the side of a green turtles face are unique to each individual. The photos are used to identify individual turtles in order to build up the turtle research photo database which is used as part of an important sea turtle conservation management plan for the islands.
