Phuket celebrated World Ocean Day on Friday. A ceremony was held in this morning at Loma Park in Patong host by Phuket’s Vice Governor Snith Sriwihok, the director of the Phuket Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) Watcharin Thinthalang and Patong’s Mayor Chalermluck Kebsub.

Chalermluck said: “This World Ocean Day is an integral part of Patong beach life as we celebrate the ongoing marine environment conservation project which has been being held 27 times on the beach.

“The project aims to promote awareness of the cleanliness of our beaches and marine environment. Residents, tourists and beach operators are all part of the project and share the job of protecting our environment.

“In this way, we can keep Patong clean together.

“Today activities included releasing 30 sea turtles which were provided by Phuket Fisheries Coastal Research and Development Centre and a beach clean to remove cigarette butts. But we are glad to report we didn’t find many.”
