Conservation

Conservation of the area is inherent to the project.

That’s why we decided to implement the bungalows within the village, so our guests can interact with the villagers who commit in return. A fee (included on our rates) is collected from the visitors to support the conservation: It is used to partly pay the expenses of the boat patrol and for the other part to support the villagers. Our short term target is to get for the area the status of KKLD, Kawasan Konservasi Laut Daerah (regional protected sea area).

Tompotika Dive lodge cares of the sea protection and for terrestrial species works together with Alto (ALliance for Tompotika Conservation), an NGO dedicated to the protection of the Maleo birds in the area since 2006.  We also launched a conservation project for the turtles to avoid eggs poaching on the beaches of the area.


Visit the Maleo bird reserve, on a beach about 20 kms away from the resort that can be accessed by boat or by road. The best time to see them is during the morning.
This very special bird lives in the forest and comes to beach to lay it’s eggs on thevery same beach they hatched, digging big holes in the sand that will ensure a constant temperature for the eggs incubation. The new born bird will get out from the sand and fly away to the forest, before to come back lay eggs
on this very same beach.

If you like birds, you can also se lot of many interesting species in the tress surrounding the brackish water lagoon,  a few kms away from the resort.
