Raising Money for The Mai Khao Marine Turtle Foundation

The Story
23 months ago

For Earth Day 2022 we want to raise money for the Maikhao Marine Turtle Foundation.

Mai Khao is one of the few Phuket beaches that continue to welcome nesting turtles. The eggs are rescued from surrounding beaches where the necessary natural and peaceful environment can no longer be guaranteed.

The eggs are the given to the Phuket Marine Biological Centre (PMBC) and Royal Thai Navy who provide a safe home for the eggs to hatch and the young turtles to gain strength before finding their true home in the Sea, the foundation funds these programs.

Over the recent years, the Foundation has broadened its environmental efforts to not only ensure the conservation of the leatherback and other turtles but also to preserve the
environment with the involvement of local communities, schools, universities, government organizations and other NGO’s.

The MKMTF is dedicated to educating the Phuket and Thailand community about the plight of the sea turtles here in Phuket and how we can support them. Efforts by the Foundation and its supporters include an integrated coastal management plan with its partner the International Union for the Conservation of Nature including beach and reef cleaning, educational workshops, recycling projects, mangrove tree planting, turtle rescue/release and support of other marine conservation organizations.
