Turtle Hatchery at the Sisters Islands Marine Park
by Singapore (Government)
A marine turtle hatchery will be established at the Sisters Islands Marine Park for the in situ incubation of at risk sea turtles eggs. The facility will provide optimal incubation conditions to improve the hatching success of rescued eggs. This is critical as only a few hatchlings from each batch will ever make it to adulthood. The facility will compliment planned long term monitoring efforts of local sea turtle populations.

In addition, the outreach activities at the hatchery will allow for special programmes and visits to educate the general public on sea turtle conservation.
