We have changed the name of our project to Tropical Island Conservation to better reflect what the project is about. Sea turtle nesting numbers have declined dramatically and although we still focus on monitoring the beaches for turtle tracks and surveying their feeding behavior, we are doing a lot of other things too.
This coming season, starting December 9th we will focus also on the plastic waste issue and hope to create something new around this topic. We continue to raise awareness, survey the coral reefs and other fauna and flora of Koh Phra Thong Island.
Another change we are making for this coming season is the accommodation. We are moving to the beach front. This change is due to Nok and Lamion focusing on their new restaurant on the beach and not having enough time to cater for the project. Accommodation will be in large tents, with beds and electricity in the evenings. There are also few bungalows available for families or shared in groups of 4.
