The Unicorn Museum Project | Official Opening Ceremony Turtle Conservation
10 Jul 2019 | Written by: The Unicorn Museum Project

Local Balinese fishermen run the Saba Asri Turtle Conservation sanctuary to care for their remarkable natural environment. Turtle eggs are protected here until they hatch and then safely released. In July 2018, an exceptionally high tide washed over the beach and damaged the building from the ocean side. In the same month, heavy rains caused a storm drain to flood the sanctuary from the river side. In the disaster, 12.000 turtle eggs were lost. 

The Unicorn Museum Project has responded to a request for help and funded the building of a new facility, designed and built to withstand such extremes of weather in the future and improve the existing turtle conservation. To show their gratitude, the fishermen have given the Project the right to name the new building; The Unicorn Museum Project Turtle Conservation.
