Turtle Alley in Malaysia is artistic reminder to public about endangerment to the species

The video, filmed on Tuesday (November 26) shows Turtle Alley, a themed lane, decorated with turtle mosaics along on the walls and the entire walkway, in Chinatown (Kampung China), Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia.

The filmer told Newsflare: "Due to the many years of disuse, the alley was in a derelict condition and Dr. Chan Eng Heng, a turtle conservationist, suggested that it be turned into an alley to create awareness on turtles.

"The proposed beautification plan was eventually fully endorsed by the Kampung China Residents Committee.

"Work on the project began in late 2010 and by July 2011, most of the turtle mosaics had been installed in the alley.

"Although the alley is now functioning fully as a public thoroughfare, ideas are still being mulled upon to fill up the remaining spaces on the walls of the alley."
