More sea turtle eggs found on Phang Nga Beach


In another really positive sign for the future of the leatherback sea turtle population in the region, 112 sea turtle eggs were found at Kuek Kak Beach in Khao Lak, Phang Nga this morning.

64 of the eggs have now been carefully moved to a safe area at the same beach whilst 48 eggs had already broken.

64 eggs have now been moved to a safe area and out of the way of any possible foot traffic.

These eggs were located 430 metres to the north from the previous area where a leatherback sea turtle laid eggs last month. They believe that it is probably the same mother turtle.
