Since 2018, in the honour of all our seafarers, we've been actively supporting the Turtle Conservation and Information Centre (TCIC) in Melaka, understanding its crucial role in protecting marine life.
Recognising the financial constraints faced by TCIC in constructing additional turtle nesting and hatching areas, Eaglestar seized the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution. We are thrilled to announce our voluntary support for the construction of a secure nesting zone at TCIC, providing approximately 300 hatching spots across 900 square meters along the beach front.
On June 21, 2023, aligning with this year's MARPOL theme, "MARPOL at 50 & Our Commitment Goes Beyond," Eaglestar orchestrated a series of impactful initiatives towards marine conservation. Our team wholeheartedly engaged in beach clean-ups, turtle conservation efforts, and the release of baby turtles at the Turtle Conservation and Information Centre in Malacca. This collective endeavor underscores Eaglestar's commitment to preventing marine pollution, supporting marine life conservation, and uplifting the communities we touch.
This initiative is not just about meeting regulatory standards; it is a testament to our dedication to contributing positively to society through conservation of marine life. We are excited about the enduring impact this initiative will have on both the local marine ecosystem and the communities we aim to uplift, reinforcing our pledge to be a responsible corporate citizen.
