Leatherback Sea Turtle Eggs Found on Phang Nga Beach

Phang Nga –

A mother leatherback sea turtle has laid eggs on a beach in the Thai Mueang district.

Officials from the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources told the Phuket Express earlier this week that they had found the tracks of a mother sea turtle on a beach in the Khao Lam Pi Hat Thai Mueang National Park area. The tracks of the mother leatherback sea turtle were 200 centimeters wide.

Inside the nest were some sea turtle eggs. The area was not affected by seawater or poor weather. The eggs were not removed and counted. The nest is being protected and monitored until the eggs hatch by the relevant authorities. Officials stated that the baby sea turtles should hatch in about 60 days.
