Two sea turtles have been saved at Naithon Beach on Phuket’s west coast.

Today (November 2), at 8am, the Chief of Sirinath National Park, Nathawat Nuisiram, along with research officials, rescued two sea turtles at Naithon Beach.

The team received a report from local villagers and headed to the beach to investigate the reports and check out the location. They found that the turtles were green sea turtles and about 2 years old.

They had minor injuries on their heads but their body parts were all OK with no signs of distress or damage. The turtles were sent to Phuket Marine Biological Centre for evaluation and treatment before returning them back into the sea.
