Turtle Conservation & Education Center (TCEC)

The Turtle Conservation and Education Centre (TCEC) is located on Tukad Wisata Street No. 4 in Serangan Village, Denpasar. As a turtle conservation center, this place provides an alternative tourist destination for both local residents and foreign tourists visiting Bali.

According to TCEC Serangan Manager, Made Sukanta, even though it is a conservation center, the number of local and foreign tourists visiting the center is quite high. "This can be seen from the increasing number of visits each month, which is around 20 percent. The high interest of tourists to visit TCEC is due to the unique type of tourism offered, which is knowledge about the life cycle of turtles, which are rare animals. Therefore, the interest of tourists to see firsthand how the life cycle of turtles is very high.

At TCEC, tourists are not only invited to see the three species that exist in Bali, namely Green Turtles, Hawksbill Turtles, and Loggerhead Turtles, but tourists will also be invited to see the process of hatching turtle eggs that are naturally done in sand ponds provided, quarantine turtles, and even release turtles that are ready to be released into the wild.

Even if there are turtle eggs hatching, the visiting tourists will also be involved in moving the hatchlings to the quarantine pond. "This process is very popular with tourists, because they have the opportunity to participate in the turtle conservation process."
