Through Lampi Foundation, Wa Ale Resorts has developed a conservation program and hatchery on the island of Wa Ale. In the past two years over 40 sea turtle nests have been protected; including Leatherback Turtles, a species thought to have disappeared from Myanmar. With over 100 baby sea turtles per nest, we have saved over 4,000 sea turtles by guarding them against poaching.
Wa Ale Resort is open between October 1st and May 31st.
