PHUKET:-- Experts at the Phuket Marine Biological Centre (PMBC) have started a research project to investigate whether rising sea temperatures are a major factor in the recent spate of turtle nests laid out of their usual egg-laying season.

 

The project comes as a large leatherback turtle came ashore a beach and laid a nest of 103 eggs in the Khao Lampi – Hat Thai Mueang National Park last night (July 28) – the fourth such turtle nest laid in the area in the past month.

 

The turtle came ashore at about 9:50pm, confirmed Park Chief Haritchai Rittichuay, who was called to the scene.

I think it would be a safe assumption that rising sea temperatures would be the main contributor to global warming, not us 🙂 and undersea volcanoes spewing molten lava 24/7 are not going to stop any time soon. Greta, please redirect your energies to pollution !
