In Indoneisa, and world wide sea turtles have suffered significant declines, and face increasing pressure from fishing, poaching and being caught as by-catch. But here at the Gili Islands off Lombok, turtle sanctuaries seem to be doing their part in helping populations recover. This wild Hawksbill turtle was one of many that I encountered during my brief two day visit. As being Critically endagered, it was great to see so many thriving on these coral reefs.
