PHUKET: Members of the public who come across a sea turtle’s nest or a sea turtle laying eggs on certain beaches in and around Phuket are urged to contact the Phuket Marine National Park Operation Center 2, and they will be rewarded B20,000 for their efforts, the centre’s chief Prarop Plang Ngan has announced.
 

“B20,000 will be given to people who find a leatherback sea turtle’s nest or a leatherback sea turtle laying eggs. B10,000 will be given for other kinds of sea turtle,” Mr Prarop explained.

 

“You don’t need to dig the nest or even touch or move the eggs. Just stay in the area and protect the nest/eggs until a National Parks officer arrives. We will check and identify the type of turtle and then give the reward to the finder,” he added.
