  • 1. CLOZE 2010 Secondary 4 NA R Name: _______________________ No: ____ Date: ________ Class: __________ KEY Main Instructions: 1. Fill in each blank with a suitable word. 2. Write each answer in the space provided in the passage. Important information: 1. Spelling errors. You receive a ½ mark if the word is a correct fit, but wrongly spelt, e.g. “missery” for “misery” or “sufficent” for “sufficiently”. You receive 0 if the spelling is so bad that the word is unrecognizable by the marker. The marker’s decision is final. 2. Grammatical errors. You receive O if the grammatical form is incorrect, e.g. “construct” for “constructed” or “suppose” for “supposing”. T1W6.2010 CLOZE 12 Factual Recount – Magazine Article: Endangered turtles 2 Purwanto, the coordinator of a turtle conservation programme run [1] jointly by the Nature Conservancy and WWF, said the adoptions helped educate local people about their marine environment as well as raise money. "We occasionally keep one to five baby turtles from a nest and allow visitors to [2] release them into the sea as a symbolic act to save the endangered [3] species. We hope to raise awareness this way," he said. A short boat ride away on Anano, the evidence of rising turtle numbers is clear. Hour-glass shaped nests full of egg shells are scattered along the pristine beach, each one marking a new [4] generation of turtles safely dispatched into the sea. "During the peak season from September to December, up to seven turtles will lay their eggs here every night," Purwanto said. Some 243 turtles laid an estimated 3,000 eggs on the island last year, [5] compared to just 20 in 2006 and 77 in 2007, he said. Endangered green and hawksbill turtles are the most common visitors. The WWF estimates that 203,000 breeding green turtle females [6] exist in the wild, and only 8,000 of the more critically endangered hawksbills. All seven marine turtle species are [7] experiencing severe threats to their survival, especially from pollution and the destruction of habitats such as coral reefs, beds of seagrass, nesting beaches and mangrove forests. Those hatchlings that survive the exhausting dash from their nests to the sea face the ever- increasing [8] risk of drowning in fishing gear or waste such as plastic bags as they [9] make their epic migrations to feeding grounds. Anano is a success story but [10] elsewhere in the vast Indonesian archipelago turtles are being killed and exploited with impunity, conservationists said. Laws setting out fines of up to 10,000 dollars and jail terms of five years for anyone [11] caught stealing eggs or poaching live turtles are rarely enforced. "Egg collection occurs in many parts of Indonesia, especially on Borneo and the western part of Sumatra island [12] where turtle eggs are still commercialised," said WWF's national coordinator of marine species conservation Creusa Hitipeuw. "Bali has been a main destination market of turtle meat which is illegally smuggled from the nearby islands of West Nusa Tenggara such as Lombok and Sumbawa." Located around 1,500 kilometres (930 miles) northeast of Jakarta, Anano and Runduma are among a cluster of islands in Wakatobi district on the southern tip of Sulawesi island. They were [13] declared a national park in 1996 and are among 11 zones the local government has set [14] aside for marine and reef conservation. "For the last three years we included environmental subjects in the school curriculum for elementary and junior high school," said Wakatobi district chief Hugua, a former environmental activist. "Wakatobi's biggest development income will focus on eco-tourism, which will maintain, [15] among other things, the sustainability of sea turtle conservation." 1 4 7 10 13 2 5 8 11 14 3 6 9 12 15
