Dr. Chan Eng Heng, a retired professor from Universiti Malaysia Terengganu, is a turtle conservationist who has been recognised by the United Nations Environment Program for her efforts to protect sea turtles.[1][2][3][4]

Chan was inducted to the UNEP Global 500 Roll of Honour and became a Global 500 Laureate[4][5] in 2001 and in 2006 she was listed in the UNEP's Who's Who of Women and the Environment.[1]

Education and career[edit]

Dr. Chan Eng Heng was born in Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia in 1950. She completed her primary and secondary school education in Convent Light Street and sixth form in St. Xavier's Institution.

She obtained her BSc (Hons) and MSc degrees from Universiti Sains Malaysia before embarking on an academic career in University Putra Malaysia (previously known as Agriculture University of Malaysia).

In 1993, she earned her PhD from Kagoshima University, under the RONPAKU scholarship programme of the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science.

In 2009, she retired from her post as Professor in Universiti Malaysia Terengganu where she co-founded and co-led the Sea Turtle Research Unit (SEATRU) from 1985 till her retirement.

In 2011, fuelled by her passion to continue working on turtle conservation, she co-founded the Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia. Currently, she is serving as its Vice-President.

After retirement, Chan also started dabbling in art as a medium to help create awareness on turtles. She turned a derelict alley in Chinatown, Kuala Terengganu into a Turtle Alley to celebrate turtles and to bring more awareness to their plight. The alley is adorned with turtle mosaics mounted on the walls as well as along the walkway. Turtle trivia, fact sheets and her book, Little Turtle Messenger etched in metallic plates further enhance the educational value of the alley.

Chan is well known, both locally and abroad for her contributions in the field of turtle research, conservation and education. The recognition of her expertise is reflected in the various appointments at the national, regional and international levels accorded to her. She has also served as turtle expert in numerous regional and international sea turtle workshops, besides having been invited as guest/plenary/keynote speaker at numerous conferences and seminars.

Achievements and recognition[edit]

Chan is recognised for initiating the first Malaysian in-situ egg protection program for marine turtles in the Chagar Hutang Turtle Sanctuary in Redang Island. Since its inception in 1993, the project has developed into a long-term nesting and tagging research program that incorporates a highly successful volunteer program.[7]

In 2004, she extended her work to cover the critically endangered river terrapins of Terengganu. This work is now carried out as community-based projects in the Setiu and Kemaman Rivers under the Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia.

Her contributions in marine turtle conservation were recognised by the United Nations Environment Programme when she was conferred the UNEP Global 500 Roll of Honour in 2001. She was listed in the UNEP's Who's Who of Women and the Environment in 2006. In Malaysia, she was conferred the title Pingat Jasa Kebaktian (PJK) by the late Sultan of Terengganu in 1991 in recognition of her contributions in the state. She has also received several research awards in the university.

Chan has published extensively in peer-reviewed journals, conference proceedings, magazines and newsletters. She has also authored several books, including a book for children entitled "Little Turtle Messenger".

Many of her works have been applied directly in the conservation of turtles in Malaysia, either to enhance existing efforts, or to develop new approaches in protecting turtles. Her publications were cited extensively in the report of the WTO (World Trade Organization) Panel on the United States – Import Prohibition of Certain Shrimp and Shrimp Products, WT/DS58/R, 15 May 1998.

Chan's work on sea turtles has been featured in both local and foreign TV programmes, such as "Beyond 2000″, Fox Family Channel's "World Gone Wild", NHK's "Meeting a New Asia", Momentum II's "Our Scientists and Inventors" and TV3′s "Majalah 3″ and "Malaysia Hari Ini".

Chan is also known for endearing turtle conservation to the hearts of the common public by her innovative "Save our Turtles Outreach Program " (popularly called STOP) carried out under SEATRU in Universiti Malaysia Terengganu. STOP involves the public directly in turtle conservation efforts through nest and turtle adoption schemes and a volunteer program. STOP has been highly publicised, as attested in the 30-odd media articles on the program.

Research Projects[edit]

On-going Research[edit]

Carried out under the Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia

  1. Setiu river terrapin recovery project. Seed money has been awarded by the Turtle Conservation Fund[7] (TCF), Turtle Survival Alliance and the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo administered in the US
  2. River terrapin research and conservation project in the Kemaman River, Terengganu. This project is funded by Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund.
