The Turtle & Fireflies Discovery Trip is a one-day public outreach programme offered by Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia (TCS). The trip is designed to give the general public an introduction to the different turtles found in Malaysia, the threats that these turtles face, and what can be done to help save them. Participants will be taken to the River Terrapin Research and Conservation Project site to learn about what TCS does to conserve our critically endangered river terrapins. Finally, participants will also have an opportunity to get up-close with fireflies in the Cherating River.
