The Sarawak Sea Turtle Volunteer Programme (SSTVP), also known as the Sea Turtle Adoption Programme (STAP), is a unique eco-tourism initiative run by Sarawak Forestry, a corporation committed to responsibly manage and conserve Sarawak’s forests, which includes the national parks in Sarawak. The SSTVP runs for four days and three nights and it offers a superb opportunity for hands-on involvement in turtle conservation in Sarawak. SSTVP participants are strictly reminded that they are not on a beach holiday, but rather helping the Sarawak Government participate actively in turtle conservation, in which they are expected to take on several task and responsibilities during their 4-day participation of the programme. The programme aims to create awareness and to impart knowledge on the importance of sea turtle conservation.

Participants will be given the opportunities to involve in :-

  • Beach patrolling
