ProFauna helps ranger to confiscate sea turtles

ProFauna helps ranger to confiscate sea turtles

ProFauna officially opened its branch office in Bali on the 15th March 2001, responding to the complexity of issues surrounding trade in Balinese animals, particularly turtles. ProFauna investigations in 1999 and 2001 proved beyond doubt that turtle trade is still rampant on the island.

ProFauna's Bali Representative has performed the following activities:

  1. Bird market monitoring
  2. Sea turtles protection programs
  3. Education program
  4. Campaigns and public awareness
  5. Law enforcement

Since opening, the Bali branch office has contributed to wild animal conservation on the island in several notable ways, including the following:

  • ProFauna helped the regional police force (POLDA) and the local Forestry Department (BKSDA) in conducting turtle and other protected species confiscation programs across Bali.
  • ProFauna have been involved, directly and through funding other parties, in the release of confiscated sea turtles back into marine ecosystems.
  • ProFauna have made visits to nursery, secondary and high schools to promote Indonesian wild animals conservation.
  • ProFauna have highlighted the issue of turtle protection through the distribution of information, including brochures, film and posters.
  • Radio and newspapers advertising on turtle protection.
  • Turtle nest protection on Kuta Beach and Tegal Besar Beach (cooperation with local people and Forestry Department). Please see more our sea turtle program on Kuta beach in this link: Together With Local People, Lets Protect Sea Turtle in Kuta Beach Bali.
ProFauna not only publicises the plight of sea turtles but takes real action to combat the sea turtle trade!
