The leatherback sea turtle nest of eggs found on a Phang Nga beach in Tai Mueang a few weeks ago has been checked and is safe following last Friday and Saturday’s bad weather.

Up to100 eggs were found after a turtle laid her eggs on the beach last month.

The Department of Marine and Coastal Resources on Monday reported that CCTV footage had been checked and showed that the leatherback’s nest was safe on Tasai Beach after a temporary 20 metres of sand had been added as a barrier against any potential impact from waves caused by storm Pabuk.
