A turtle laid 93 eggs at the beach in Khao Lak, Phang Nga, last week. Now 89 eggs have been moved to a safe area on the beach while four eggs broke. Rangers believe that moving the eggs to an area with fewer people gives a better chance of survival.
Director of the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources Pratom Rassamee said: “We were notified today that sea turtle tracks were found on the beach.

“We are not sure if this turtle is the same as last week as the distance between Khao Lak and Tai Mueang is probably too far and the width of the tracks are a little bit larger.”
