My wife and I love SCUBA diving. When we lived in China for 13 months as foreign teachers we were able to travel to exotic destinations all around South-East Asia. One of our favorites was Mabul Island in Malaysian Borneo.
Surrounded by pristine water and friendly faces it was no wonder that this was one of the best and most eco-friendly places to dive in the world. Hawksbill and Green Sea turtle conservation efforts are steadily on the rise on this small island paradise. Learn more: http://wildarkonline.com/
The local Malaysians and some Filipinos living on this island once ate turtle eggs regularly as they are a prevalent source of food and can be used for a variety of dishes. But luckily local dive shops have pooled together to give money in exchange for every turtle egg turned over by the local Malaysians. In turn, this keeps the local turtle population safe from interference.
