Second nest of baby leatherback turtles hatch at Bang Khwan Beach


Recommended Posts

It has been a very good year for turtles on the west coast.
 

The beach just south of Natai beach had two nests of the worlds largest sea turtles for the first time since the tin mining days. Looks like they are making a comeback. Further north have also had quite a few nests.

Why can't they just leave the turtles to do what is natural instead of turning it into a public sideshow???

Some say that to be ignorant is bliss.. who in the hell doesn't know about endangered species and the efforts of the so valued few to keep them sustained.

Hopefuly it will enlighten those who decide to hunt them for shells and meat.

I can recall when you could purchase cans of turtle soup around the world. 

Turtle soup from freshly caught turtles were a mainstay in many restaurants in tropical locations in the 70s.
