The warm coastal waters surrounding Hainan Island provide critical foraging ground for green, hawksbill, and olive ridley sea turtles. Despite all three species being listed as critically endangered on the China Species Red List, a vast amount of illegal harvesting occurs, reducing their populations at an extraordinary rate. Sea turtles face a host of other obstacles further diminishing their rate of survival, including: fisheries by catch, plastic debris ingestion, and habitat loss. The Ritz-Carlton, Sanya together with Sea Turtles 911 is actively working to alleviate the pressures that threaten the existence of these beautiful creatures through rescues, rehabilitation as well as raising and releasing them back to their natural habitat.
We encourage you and your little ones to come and visit Tutu, a sea turtle rescued by Sea Turtle 911, and his friends. Get up close and personal to feed and play with them every Saturday at the Kids Club.
