THE Melaka government is curtailing the perimeter of ongoing reclamation works close to Pulau Upeh for the sake of turtles, said state Agriculture, Entrepreneur Development, Co-operative and Agro-Based committee chairman Norhizam Hassan Baktee.

He said the move was decided as the state government was focusing on conserving and preserving the environment of the turtle landing sites at Pulau Upeh and other parts of the state.
