The Pasir Panjang Segari Turtle Sanctuary, is located just a few miles from the town of Lumut in the state of Perak. Visitors get the opportunity to learn about the turtles in their natural habitat. Run by the Department of Fisheries, this hatchery and research center is a quiet stretch of beach and main landing area for the Green Turtle, Olive Ridley Turtle and Painted Terrapin. Due to the decline in turtle landing over the years, the sanctuary provides a heaven for baby turtles who struggle to survive against their natural predators and trawler nets.
