Project Summary

"Little Turtle Messenger" is a story about how a little girl meets a turtle in her dream and is brought to the world of turtles to see some of the hazards faced by them. She finally arrives in the village of turtles and finds only old and sad turtles. She immediately realizes why the young ones are missing. Humans have been eating turtle eggs, not giving them a chance to hatch. She promises the turtle she will help. By relating the turtle's story to her friends, family, school, then other schools, she is able to get people to stop eating turtle eggs.


Our project is to design & develop an interactive storybook app for the Apple's iPad, based on the story, "Little Turtle Messenger" with subtle messages; to spread Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia's activities in the turtle & terrapin sphere. It is based on a Malaysianized hardcopy storybook & DVD animation by the same name, Little Turtle Messenger.

We hope the iPad storybook will reach out to a global audience on the conservation efforts and how everyone can play an educational role within their community, while raising funds at the same time, for more conservation work through Turtle Conservation Society (TCS) Malaysia.

The project is targeted at the people who want to contribute towards turtle & terrapin conservation but don't know how. The development & deployment of this iOS app hopes to increase fundraising activities in a multiplier effect, where sales from it (after Apple's 30% & government tax) will go back to Turtle Conservation Society, allowing for more conservation activities! As an App in the AppStore, it will stand the test of time and continuously raise fund with the least minimal effort.

If you have any questions, please feel free to pose your questions in the DISCUSSION board in the Project Page.
