There is no greater view than seeing a turtle, having been nurtured in the local sanctuary which we support, on its long run to freedom and see it takes its first steps wrestling with the ocean waves.
Sea Turtle Conservation Centre
Major efforts globally are under way to try and stem the serious decline in most of the planet’s seven marine turtle species.
Five of those special have been found in Thai waters although it is thought the loggerhead turtle long ago disappeared.
The Sea Turtle Conservation Centre is attempting to increase the number of leatherback, green, hawsbill and olive ridley turtles.
The main treats include net entanglements, the consumption of turtle eggs, coastal developments, pollution and ingesting plastic bags and other garbage.
