Indonesia, which has a coast along 81,000 km and consists of 17,508, is a maritime country rich in diversity of marine flora and fauna, one of which is turtles. However, currently there are only 6 species of sea turtles in the world. Of the six species, 5 of them inhabit and form their own population in our waters. The five species of turtles are green turtle, chelonia mydas, hawksbill turtle, eretmochelys imbricate, leatherback turtle, dermochelys cariacea, olive ridley turtle, lepidochelys olivacea and loggerhead turtle (loggerhead turtle / caretta). caretta).

Turtles have a long life cycle and have very high economic value. So often found illegal poaching of turtles for their eggs and meat and organs. As a result, the number of turtles in the wild has dropped dramatically and is threatened by its existence.

Seeing this phenomenon, Sewon 1 Vocational High School (VHS) also felt concerned. These concerns were manifested in the form of turtle release activities on the coast of Pelangi Beach. The activity entitled "Support Turtles Conservation: Protect Them as You Protect Yourself" was held on Tuesday, November 13, 2018.

The activity was initiated by the third grade students of Tourism department and became a part of practical activities in the subjects of Meeting, Incentive, Conference and Exhibition (MICE).

Peduli Penyu, SMKN 1 Sewon Lepas Tukik di Pesisir Pantai Pelangi

Negara Indonesia yang memiliki pesisir sepanjang 81.000 km dan terdiri dari 17.508 merupakan negara bahari yang kaya dengan keanekaragaman flora dan fauna laut, salah satunya adalah penyu. Namun, saat ini dari 7 spesies penyu yang ada di dunia, hanya tersisa 6 spesies. Dari keenam spesies tersebut, 5 di antaranya menghuni dan membentuk populasi tersendiri di perairan kita. Kelima spesies penyu tersebut adalah penyu hijau (green turtle, chelonia mydas) penyu sisik (hawksbill turtle, eretmochelys imbricate) penyu belimbing (leatherback turtle, dermochelys cariacea) penyu lekang (olive ridley turtle, lepidochelys olivacea) dan penyu tempayan (loggerhead turtle/caretta caretta).

Penyu memiliki siklus hidup yang begitu lama dan mempunyai nilai ekonomis yang sangat tinggi. Sehingga sering ditemukan perburuan ilegal penyu untuk diambil telurnya maupun daging dan organ tubuh. Akibatnya jumlah penyu di alam liar menurun drastis dan terancam keberadaannya.

Melihat fenomena tersebut, SMKN 1 Sewon ikut merasa prihatin. Keprihatinan tersebut diwujudkan dalam bentuk kegiatan pelepasan tukik di pesisir Pantai Pelangi. Kegiatan yang bertajuk  “Support Turtles Conservation: Protect Him as You Protect Yourself” dilaksanakan pada Selasa, 13 November 2018.

Kegiatan tersebut diinisiasi oleh siswa kelas XII Usaha Perjalana Wisata 2 dan menjadi bagian dari kegiatan praktik mata pelajaran Meeting, Incentive, Conference and Exhibition (MICE). (jmd)
