One of our followers found a Sea Turtle carcass between Berakas beach and Tungku beach last Friday while practising for our running event.

“This look like a juvenile Hawksbill Sea Turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata). From the bruises it looks like it has been entangled on a fishing net then it drowned.” as told by our Malaysian sea turtle expert counterpart.

Brunei is known for its foraging area for these Sea Turtles. Hawksbills are considered a critically endangered species in the world. If you find dead Sea Turtles or selling of turtle eggs, contact us.

RIP poor animal.
