PHUKET: A total of 29 baby leatherback turtles broke through the sand and made their way into the sea at Kata Beach last night (Feb 26), as a large gathering of well-wishers stood back to watch.


Local residents massed at Kata Beach in high hopes of watching the turtles hatch last night after the sand above the nest started to collapse yesterday morning.


Marine life experts from the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) this morning (Feb 27) reported that the first turtles surfaced at about 10pm last night and began making their way to the water’s edge.
