PHUKET:-- Marine wildlife officers have left a leatherback turtle nest found on Mai Khao Beach yesterday (Jan 12) undisturbed to allow the eggs to hatch naturally.


Officials at Sirinath National Park were called to Mai Khao Beach at 4pm yesterday when Mai Khao Moo 4 Village Head Winai Sae-iew reported that turtle tracks had been found on the beach by a local resident.


Sirinath National Park officers soon arrived at the beach, along with fellow park officers from Khao Lampi Hat Thai Mueang National Park in Phang Nga and marine life experts from the Phuket Marine Biological Centre (PMBC) at Cape Panwa.
