Rantau Abang's fame is gone with the Non-return of LeatherBack turtles, Now, it is the Green turtle that dominates the coast of Malaysia

Rantau Abang coast @ Kuala Trengganu used to be a popular spot for the Giant Leatherback Turtles to land, however, due to the constant disturbance from the human activities, these giant creatures are disappearing from sight. Government is aware of the need of the conservation of such creatures that frequent the Malaysian Coast, and now Green Turtles become the common visitors on the various conservation sites along the Malaysian Coast. Just before these creatures disappear from the Malaysian Scene, I will better to capture them on Maximum Cards.

It is sad that this is actually happening. Back in the days when we were growing up the highlight of any east coast trip was leatherback turtle watching. We were not fortunate enough to be there during that time. And it is all gone now.
