Selingan Turtle Island is located some 40 km north of Sandakan in the Sulu Sea. The park was

established with the aim to improve the turtle conservation program which includes the management

of hatcheries, hatchlings and nesting beaches. Conservation of sea turtles through the operation

of turtle hatchery is the main activity of the park. The turtle eggs are gathered from the natural

nests and transplanted into the hatchery. After an incubation period about 60 days, the turtle

hatchings emerged and are released into the sea. The Sabah Parks had provided only limited
