THE TURTLES ARE BACK!

We are delighted to announce that
the annual nesting season of the Turtles has begun on the beach in front of Tanjong Jara Resort.

This weekend saw the arrival of the first two females and the resort is thrilled to have counted a total of 230 eggs, which are safely protected in their hatchery.


With numbers dwindling due to deforestation – the
Oriental Pied Hornbill is being encouraged to breed at Pangkor Laut through the use of special nesting boxes set up by the Resort naturalist.

Captured on the webcam, this event is not normally visible as the mother seals herself in to the nest with only a small hole through which the father passes food.
View the baby with its distinctive large beak being so well protected by its mother.
Mother & chick remain safe and secure in the nest for a further 14 days before breaking out to take flight.
