Based on Pontianak BPSPL enumeration data since 2016, the types of turtles found are the Green Turtle (Chelonia mydas), the Hawksbill Turtle (Eretmochelys imbricate), and the Lekang Turtle (Lepidochelys olivacea).

The dominant turtle found was the green turtle. It was recorded that more than 2,000 landed each year, even in 2019 there were 4,000 Green Turtles that landed.
