From backside postcard:
Turtle Islands Park is located within the Turtle Islands, which lie in the Sulu Sea north of Sandakan in Sabah. It consists of 3 islands Selingan, Bakungan Kecil and Gulisan islands. (actually 10 in total, where 3 belong to Malaysia and the other 7 to the Philippines). It covers an area of 17.4 km² which includes the surrounding reefs and seas.
The park is a safe haven for the endangered green and hawksbill turtles and gives you the rare opportunity to watch turtle landings. Selingan, the largest of the islands, houses the park's headquarters, a turtle hatchery, tourist accommodation and basic facilities. The other two islands are more for conservation activities.
The Green turtle is the second largest of the seven species of sea turtle. Like most of them, the green turtle has been hunted by human for ﬂesh, eggs and shell. The green turtle spends most of its live in the sea. The females come a shore to lay their eggs for only a very short time. From 1000 eggs, just one or two survive their ﬁrst year. There are either eaten by ﬁsh, birds or other sea creatures.
