“Kuta beach has been the popular breeding location on the island of Bali where the sea turtles come ashore at night and lay hundreds of eggs at a time. However the number of sea turtles in the Indonesian archipelago has been declining rapidly due to illegal poaching” said Sere Nababan General Manager Circus Waterpark
“By that reason on Celebrating of Miniapolis Bali First Anniversary, on last August 2013, Miniapolis staffs and loyal members, from Yayasan Kanker Anak Kasih Indonesia (a foundation of children with cancer) and kindergarten students from Jembatan Budaya and Highscope participated in releasing baby sea turtles back to the Indian Ocean at Kuta beach in Miniapolis Save the Turtle program. Mr. Crick, the famous bunny mascot of Miniapolis also witnessed the event along with the blue Willy, his friend from Circus Waterpark Bali with the Bali Sea Turtles Foundation’ Sere added.
“Miniapolis with the nature themed indoor children playground at Beachwalk Kuta has inspired these children to become more responsible with the nature. By releasing the baby sea turtles back to their natural habitat was surely a great experience for the children. They have taken an important role to preserve these endangered species and learned about its life cycle in a fun atmosphere right by the beach. Teaching children at early age to love the nature will increase the chance of having future leaders that will empower the environment friendly projects.” Sere hopefully (BTN/014)
