Turtle releasing

Witness one of the nature’s miracle! This year we have the first Hawksbill newborn turtles to be released on Thursday, 28th May 2015 at the Banyu Biru Villa Beach, Nirwana Gardens.


The Green and Hawksbill Turtles climb ashore to the beaches of Bintan Island twice a year to lay their eggs. Our Nirwana Gardens conservation team will collect and bury the eggs in a sheltered hatchery to protect them from predators and poachers. The eggs will conserved for approximately 60 days before they hatch. Then the released of the newborn turtles will within 3 days after the first egg hatched.


This year, the first egg was hatched a little earlier than predicted. Guests who are delighted in joining us for the release of hatchlings, please come to the Banyu Biru Villas beachfront to have a one-in-a-lifetime experience together with your family and friends.
