Abstract

Hawksbill Turtle is listed as totally protected species of animals in the Schedule 1 Part I of Sabah Wildlife Conservation Enactment 1997. Therefore, the law protection of Hawksbill Turtle in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah was studied. In order to determine the way and the knowledge of the Sabah Wildlife Department's staffs towards implementation of Sabah Wildlife Conservation Enactment 1997, a survey through questionnaire was carried out. Data grouping and analysis using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) are able to show cross tabulation count of the Spearman's rank order correlation between the level of post in the department and the necessity to study the Sabah Wildlife Conservation Enactment 1997 was not significant. Another correlation which determines the association between the knowledge of the enactment by the staffs and their involvement in patrolling and operations working with other authorities shows to be significant. The study turns out to be more detailed when there was useful information gained through the Wildlife Department Officer's interview. It is concluded that the law protection of Hawksbill Turtle in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah by Sabah Wildlife Department (SWD) seems to be effective when the populations of the turtle appear to be stabilising
