Tropical Research and Conservation Centre
Located in Semporna’s Pom Pom Island, this place is just minutes away from Kapali, Mabul and Sipadan. Volunteer divers stay here for 1 to 12 weeks, ensuring protection of the reef by coral reef re- plantation, protecting turtles and sharks, conducting surveys and demonstrating actively the value of protecting marine areas. As of now, tents are used for accommodation purposes on the beach itself with great food being provided thrice every day. Every tourist here contributes to this reef rebuilding process, building fish aggregation devices, conservation diving with biologists and scientists and being part of shark and turtle monitoring surveys.
