PHUKET: Turtle tracks were found on Mai Khao Beach this morning (June 28), but officers at Sirinath National Park have been unable to find any nest of eggs laid in the sand.

 

Park officers were called to the beach at about 7:30am after local residents found turtle tracks in the sand. The villagers informed Mai Khao Moo 4 Village Headman Winai Sae-i, who in turn called the park, explained Park Chief Natthawat Nuisriram.

 

The tracks measured a span of 190 centimetres, leading park officers to believe the turtle was a large leatherback with a shell measuring some 77cm across, he added.
