Marine life expert Dr. Thon Thamrongnawasawat told The Phuket Express that a second sea turtle was found covered with oil stains at the Racha Yai Island in Mueang Phuket. The turtle was rescued and cleaned before being taken to the Sireetarn Marine Endangered Animals Rescue Center for further medical treatment.
Oil stains have now heavily impacted marine lives and coral reefs. This means it has impacted the overall Phuket marine ecological system. This problem is urgent and needs to be quickly solved, said Dr. Thon.
