After a 23 year absence from the beach in Thai Muang district of the southern Thai province of Phang-nga, Ridley’s turtles have returned to the beaches to breed, causing excitement among park officials.

 

On Friday, Mr. Jatuporn Burutpat, director-general of the Marine and Coastal Resources Department, said that he had been informed by the chief of Khao Lampee-Hat Thai Muang national park about the discovery of 81 Ridley’s turtle eggs on the beach in the park.

 

The eggs have been collected and taken to the nursery at a turtle watch centre on Tha Sai beach for incubation and the nest on the beach has been cordoned off with a bamboo fence.

This is good news. Hopefully successfully replaced, hatched and safely returned to the sea.
