Talang-Satang is the first National Park in Sarawak to consist primarily of a marine area. It has been created for the primary purpose of marine turtle conservation. It consists of two sections: the Satang Section and the Talang-Talang section. This park includes all four islands of Pulau Satang Besar, Pulau Satang Kecil, Pulau Talang-Talang Besar, and Pulau Talang-Talang Kecil, and the area of sea and sea bed for 4.8 km (3-statute miles) from the highest point of each island.

Between May and October green turtles come ashore to lay their eggs at the Satang Islands just offshore from
Turtle eggs were once a popular delicacy but now these threatened creatures are protected.
Pulau Satang Besar and its surrounding waters are protected as a sanctuary for the turtles. It is supervised by the Sarawak Turtles Board of Management in close cooperation with the Sarawak Museum and the Sarawak Forestry Department.
To ensure the turtles survive, park rangers collect the eggs, count them and replace them in a beach hatchery. When the hatchlings emerge from their eggs after 40 to 60 days, rangers record their numbers and release them into the sea.
