1 day salary for a turtle ranger
Protecting sea turtles in Indonesia. The Indonesian Derawan Islands off eastern Borneo are an important nesting area for the endangered green sea turtle. However, illegal egg collection reduced this population by about 90% compared to its former size decades ago. With the aid of local rangers who are now guarding the beaches round the clock, the Turtle Foundation is able to curb poaching on two islands almost completely, thus making an important contribution to preserve this population from extinction.
