Libaran Island is about 45 minutes by boat ride north of Sandakan and lies next to the Turtle Island Marine Park of Seligan, Gulisan and Bankugan Kecil. It is approximately 650 acres in size with 450 villagers living on the island. Their main livelihood is fishing as well as boat and net making. Here, Walai Penyu conservation park and the turtle hatchery are operated by Friends Of Sea Turtles Education Research (FOSTER) has been set up. FOSTER has worked hand in hand with the Sabah Wildlife Department in turtle conservation program since year 2013.

The program includes creating awareness for the locals and visitors on the conservation value of sea turtles, undertaking research projects with the goal of better understanding the life cycle of sea turtles surrounding the Libaran Island area and to make available research programmes on sea turtle. Turtle landings on the island have seen a marked increased and since November 2011 till January 2015, 25,939 baby turtles have been released from the hatchery into the ocean, of which 16,406 are Green Turtles and 9,533 are Hawsbill Turtles.

As we all know, the world is encountering an ocean threat – PLASTIC POLLUTION, so is Libaran Island. This critical pollution impacts not only to the sea turtles in Pulau Libaran, but also seabirds, fish, coral reefs and countless other marine species and their habitats. It also mars otherwise beautiful beaches, shorelines. To fight against the ocean plastic pollution, they have been continually cleaning up the 1500-meter shoreline with the cooperation of local villagers. Naturally,this clean up incurs a cost. Therefore, we are here to help them appeal for public contributions to clean up the beach in order to save the beach. Cleaning costs for a 100-meter shoreline is RM125 per month. At the moment,  as much as 800 meters of the shoreline’s cleaning fee is sponsored by few organizations till March 2019. Now, they would like to appeal for an amount RM5250to clean up the remaining 700-meter shoreline for the period of September 2018 to March 2019. It is important that we conserve and protect our environment and ensure that our future generations can still enjoy the same quality of flora and fauna of Sabah. We sincerely thank you for your support.

This kind donation is from a kid who sells kuih to save money for the beach cleaning service.
