A mother leatherback sea turtle laid eggs on a beach in the Thai Mueang district.
The Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) told the Phuket Express that on Tuesday (January 30th) a local found a mother leatherback sea turtle laying eggs on the Tha Rai Beach in the Na Toei sub-district.
The DMCR found eggs inside the nest but the number of eggs was not released as of press time. They made a temporary fence to prevent the eggs from being bothered by other animals. The area was not affected by sea water. The DMCR stated that the baby sea turtles should hatch in about 60 days.
