Juara Turtle Project - Change Starts With You

Juara Turtle Project is a conservation and research centre on Tioman Island, and the group call themselves a "peoples project", because they believe change begins with people. The group runs a number of volunteer-based conservation projects to try and progress the situation for the sea turtles and natural habitats on Tioman island, which also has some of the world’s most pristine coral reefs that facilitate a flourishing ecosystem. However, that system is constantly under threat due to unsustainable practices on a local and global scale. We find out more about the group and their work from John Richard Amos and Siti Hawa binti, who are both with the Juara Turtle Project.
