Turtle Crying after Laying Eggs in Terengganu is one of the beautiful videos I have taken in a very long time. This was shot on location at Rantau Abang in Terengganu at the end of 2012 when I was there visiting a resort and also for some scuba diving.
Rantau Abang has been one of the popular places to spot turtles since the 1970s and over the years, the place has been taken over by the wildlife department where turtle sightings are no longer open to the public.
The state is also having the Visit Terengganu 2013 campaign for travelers and there are many popular islands to visit like the Perhentian Islands. Redang Island and also Tenggol Island. Before seeing the turtles at Rantau Abang, I was actually scuba diving at Perhentian Island with friends and then I moved on to the Tanjong Jara Resort for another short stay there.
There are a number of turtle conservations in Malaysia where most of them are hatcheries and one of the popular ones is located at Turtle Island in Sabah which is locally known as Pulau Selingan Turtle Island. Others include Talang Island Turtle Conservation in Sarawak while other smaller islands around Sabah play host to turtles coming ashore.
If you are headed to east coast Sabah, there are special packages to go and watch turtles laying eggs there which is controlled by the Sabah Wildlife Park. It is also an overnight trip for those interested. Hope you have enjoyed watching my video of a turtle crying after laying eggs in Terengganu.
