Selingan Turtle Island - The Island hosts one of the oldest turtle hatcheries in the world and is one of South East Asia's most important nesting beach and breeding ground for the Green Turtle and Hawksbill Turtle. All environmental conditions on Selingan Island is made ideally safe for Sea Turtles to come and lay eggs, away from predators and all sorts of pollution such as light and noise. It is also a safe haven where baby hatchlings could be released without dangers and disorientation.

It is a rehabilitation project dedicated to orphaned Orangutan that were rescued from plantations, illegal hunting, or illegally kept as pets.  The boardwalk that leads to the viewing gallery and feeding platform allows you to witness the orangutans being fed milk and bananas. Feeding happens twice a day at 10am and 3pm by rangers.
