Working with the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Ministry of Envrionmental Conservation and Forestry of the Union of Myanmar, the Foundation built the first sea turtle hatchery in Lampi Marine National Park.
For the past several years, almost all turtle nesting sites have been raided by humans and local predatory wildlife.The Lampi Foundation has empowered local villagers to safeguard all future nesting grounds. As of January 30, 2016, we have saved over 4 nests totaling 500 turtles that have been released safely into the sea off of Wa Ale Island.
The Lampi Foundation has continually provided supplies and equipment to the village schools on both Salet Galet village and Ma Kyone Galet village. We will be conducting free English instruction soon to the school children.
