Want to get up close and personal with Indonesia’s endangered turtle population in a safe and responsible way? You can do so through October at two resorts: The Oberoi Beach Resort, Bali, and The Oberoi Beach Resort, Lombok.

In Bali, witness the very beginnings of the endangered Olive Ridley sea turtle life cycle, as Seminyak Beach provides nesting grounds for turtles. The Oberoi Beach Resort, Bali features its own protected nesting area to keeps turtle eggs safe from predators. Once the eggs hatch, hotel staff care for the baby turtles before releasing them after about a day. Guests can enjoy guided tours of the on-site turtle sanctuary, as well as participate in the release of the baby turtles (if they’re lucky enough to stay at the property during such an event).

 

At the Lombok resort, guests enjoy access to Medana Bay, where Olive Ridley sea turtles live as adults. The resort includes a PADI dive center with instructors, and guests are invited to go on diving excursions where they’ll see not only sea turtles, but also a range of marine life.

While there’s nothing wrong with that — travel does, after all, bring us closer to the world around us — tourists have earned quite the negative reputation for leaving destinations worse for wear. Whether it’s a visitor climbing to the top of the temple at Chichen Itza or tourists scratching their name on the wall of Rome’s Colosseum, it seems humans are always leaving their mark on the places they visit.

United flyers are sure to notice these enhancements from the moment they step on board: Each new or updated plane sports remodeled seats, seatback entertainment screens for everyone, Bluetooth connectivity and more, all adding up to a better experience on every journey.
