Abstract

This research used a purposive sampling method in Mubraidiba villag , North Manokwari District in July 2019 with the aim of assessing the potential of sea turtle natural resources, the willingness of local communities to change their income earning patterns, estimating and determine the income level of local communities from selling turtle eggs and developing a local community-based turtle ecotourism development strategy on the north coast of Manokwari.  Data collection was carried out by means of field observations and literature, where field observations by viewing directly at the research location and interviews with the help of questionnaires to visitors, local communities and key persons and literature studies to obtain information related to the research. The results showed that four species of sea turtles lay eggs in the area: green, olive ridley, leatherback and hawksbill sea turtles with the number of eggs ranged from 61-122 eggs/nest.  Local people are willing to change their pattern of earning a living by profession selling food, souvenirs, tour guides, rental of tourist facilities, motorcycle ride.  The income of the local community by selling turtle eggs to the Manduni Putra TPP ranges from Rp. 100,000-Rp. 2,150,000 depending on the number of nests.  The existence of turtles can attract visitors and have the potential to be used as a tourist attraction that would change the income earning patterns of the local community.
