On the 3rd of April 2019, some volunteers from the IEEE Sensor and Nanotechnology Joint Councils Chapter participated in the KKTAG Turtle Day event. The volunteers reached the Taman Negara Pulau Pinang at around 10AM in the morning. The group then proceeds to a briefing session by the tour guide about Taman Negara and its rich history.
The team then proceeds to a jungle trekking session for about 3 hours in the Taman Negara. The trail ends at Pantai Kerachut (Turtle beach). There, the team was given another briefing by the officer about the turtle conservation efforts in Malaysia. The volunteers had the chance to help the conservation center in releasing baby turtles back to the sea.
