  1. Sarah & Nad

    We had fun during the virtual tour and also learnt a lot about Malaysia’s local turtles and tortoises. The timing was also perfect for us being in Europe, whereby usually programes are held when we ‘re still sleeping. Thanks to the organiser!


    We joined the 1st Virtual Tour by TCS last Sunday.

    Well, we would give them 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼! Great job by them trying to showcase their gallery and hatchery using mobile and Internet.

    Though I still think being there in person will be more fun as u can touch the artifacts on display, slowly read the information displayed on the walls, and the best is get to play with the hatchlings in their start-up pond.

    And can enjoy the strong sea breeze (though u can see it from the coconuts trees branches swaying strongly in the nearby village).

    But the message of conservation and how we can help to preserve the natural river habitats did get transpired well with the kids’ audience.

    Since it’s MCO now in most part of the cities, I do encourage all parents to consider joining this educational and fun (virtual) tour with your children. I am sure we will all get to gain some new knowledge.

    We are very privileged to be psysically there while Dr Pelf conduct the virtual tour. Very informative and the kids are very engaged throughout the whole session.

    The session started with introduction to the project, witnessing the nests and eggs at the hatchery, microchipping process, briefing on all the different species of turtles, a walkthough the exhibits in the gallery consisting of skeletal and preserved of different species alongside informative posters. Lastly a visit to the pond of hatchlings before Q&A session. The whole tour went smoothly and transitioning from one scene to another making the one hour compact with great educational value.

    K : It was really cool and awesome; can learn a lot about river terrapins and turtles !
    J : The whole tour is very interesting ! I love it !

    Great way to visit the Turtle Gallery and learn about terrapins from anywhere in Malaysia/the world! Pelf does an amazing job in engaging the crowd.

    Highly recommended!

  5. Li Hui

    I have learnt a lot from the virtual tour and it was very informative and fun. This is the first time where I get to know that there is also a type of turtle that named Terrapin other than Leatherback turtle. Thank you Dr Pelf and your team. Good job!

  6. Azril and Lily

    Excellent and informative virtual tour. Totally recommended!

    Was nice to see as well the many head started turtles in your care. May all of them do well upon their release.

    I had not realized that they smile naturally too! Adorable like bottlenose dolphins, that can be some good marketing right there :)

    Keep up the great work. And maybe we can look forward to a virtual tour 2 with more stuff? :D

  9. Calvin Lai Yew Veng

    Thoroughly enjoyed the virtual tour which I attended on 10 July 2021. It was a very informative session and I managed to learn a lot, such as the fact that there are 22 species of turtles in Malaysia.
    I really wish I could have been there in person to see the turtles.
    Keep up the good work Dr. Pelf and the rest of the team!

  10. Andrew Sia

    An excellent virtual tour, Dr Pelf is a cheerful guide to the terrapins. U will leave the tour feeling something for these poor animals. The NGO doesn’t get any govt support & need all the public help they can get.

  11. Mohd Rizal Zahari

    My daughters & I really enjoy the virtual tour. We learn new thing especially about terrapin. It is very informative. We wish to have a physical tour when it is allowed to travel again. It is really a great effort by TCS to organize this virtual tour.

  12. Nur Aishah Abu Kasim

    I held a private virtual learning with TCS with my students. They did a great job in term of explaining the fun facts about terrapin. Our students enjoyed the virtual learning and were excited to see different types of turtles, learning the danger that our ecosystem facing right now, the tour gallery. Thank you so much !

  13. Audrey

    Loved the tour – so informative…. would have loved to be there and experience everything in person. Thank you, Dr Pelf – what an amazing job you have done in working with the villagers, educating them, studying the terrapins and educating us. Keep up the great work!!!

  14. Cisca

    It’s a very nice virtual tour. Very informative and communicative. I really enjoy and learn a lot from this virtual tour. Thank you Dr. Pelf!

  15. Phoebe

    My family and I really enjoyed the tour led by Dr Chen. Despite the tour being a virtual one, content was interesting and delivered so well. Dr Chen speaks with great knowledge, passion and you can always see a smile on her face. We learnt a lot about freshwater turtles in Malaysia, as well as the ongoing conservation efforts to protect them. So happy to know that the turtles are being “watched over by angels”. Well done!

    We hope to make a visit one day when interstate travel is allowed again.

  16. Ann & Dhiran

    Educational for ALL ages, great family activity – A wonderful way to spend our Saturday morning. Dr Chen articulates the information really well. She and her team run the tour in a professional manner. From the tour we are able to feel the passion from Dr Chen and the rest of her team from producing a good quality video to a clean gallery. Keep up the good work and thank you for your conservation efforts!

    Very educational! Dr Pelf did a great job introducing some of the turtles species!

  21. Maya

    Really enjoyed the virtual tour, would recommend this to turtle and tortoise lovers. Learnt a lot of facts from Dr Pelf! I am amazed by the techniques and conservation efforts done by TCS, it was an eye-opening experience. If only we can go there on site it will be even better.

  22. Syaf

    It was a very fun virtual tour full with information. Kids would really love this kind of tour as it was very easy to digest. I think it is important to spread the awareness to people to conserve terrapin especially in Malaysia and this programme does a great job in doing it.

  23. Gin

    I love how Dr.Pelf explaining everything! TCS team is really passionate in doing the conservation jobs. The whole tour is so inspiring and fun. I really wish to visit their place one day. Thank you TCS Malaysia.

  24. Fern

    Dr Pelf is an amazing turtle superhero! The virtual tour featured lots of varieties of turtles. We also met a live river terrapin and box turtle. Thank you for this informative session – very kid friendly!

  25. Lily

    I love Dr Pelf! She gave such great explanation about the conservation of turtles and even showed the difference between box and river terrapin.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and her showing how each turtle shell looks like. I can’t wait to be able to visit their conservation centre and see everything in person!

  26. Nur’Ain binti Abdullah

    Padat dengan info2 yang kita kemungkinan tidak tahu.

    Seperti spesis2 turtle yang ada.. Ada duduk di Bukit, sungai, laut.. Dan juga jenis penyu yang mempunyai cenkerang yang lembut..

    Dan paling menarik nama Tungtung diberi kerana semasa menimbus telur, penyu mengunakan cengkerang di badan untuk menimbus tanah dan bunyi ‘tungtung’ tuntung..

    Terima Kasih Dr Pelf 🤗

    Dan tour ini sesuai untuk belajar tentang sains dan untuk anak2 bawah 6 tahun mungkin tidak berapa sesuai kerana anak2 ni memerlukan gambaran yang banyak.

  27. Precious Lambs Kindergarten

    We had organized a virtual field trip with TCS for our children at Precious Lambs Kindergarten to teach them about turtles as our theme for the month was on “Animals with shells”. Dr. Pelf was very engaging. She made it easy for the children to understand. It was very interesting and very informative, and to see the children smiling looking at the freshwater turtles shown by Dr. Pelf was just amazing. The children were asking questions, and Dr. Pelf and her team did a wonderful job answering each and everyone of the children’s questions. We are thankful for this field trip as it also shows the children how to protect endangered animals and how they are being cared for by Dr. Pelf and her team. Great Job!

  28. Raymond

    Really informative and no short of interesting. In spite of it being a virtual tour, it was really engaging and interactive for us viewers!

    Kudos to the two speakers :)

  29. Matthew Oh

    It was a wonderful Saturday morning full of insights into the turtle conservation world! Dr Pelf and Jason were full of energy and they knew exactly how to keep the crowd’s interest going. They were both super knowledgeable and showed us interesting things that they had prepared at their respective sites. Would definitely recommend this tour to other people!!!

  30. Pei Jhen

    Had a really wholesome morning learning about all things turtles! A very well-planned out, executed and thought out virtual tour packed with information. The transitions from each speakers and segment were super smooth and interactive! I really felt like I was there!

    Kudos to the organisers! 10/10 and would definitely recommend! (:

  32. Umi

    We had a virtual tour for our kindergarten. They enjoyed seeing the turtles and the museum. The learners were given time to ask questions in between the tour and Dr. Pelf gave clear and simple answers for the children to understand. I would highly recommend this not just for children but for adults as well. I personally had fun learning about the turtles.
