Pemuteran village, Gerokgak subdistrict, Buleleng, Bali, is gaining fame as a haven for tourists with a deep love for meditation and the sea as well as a site for a captive breeding program of three rare turtle species. Until the 1980s, many turtles were laying eggs in the sands of Bali's beaches. Of the world's six turtle species, five have their home in Bali. Unfortunately, turtle hunting has not only left the island's turtles nearly extinct but has also discouraged them from ever visiting Bali's beaches any more.
