Laguna Phuket Launches Young Sea Turtles on Ocean Odysseys

40 young sea turtles were released into the waters of the Andaman Sea to begin their lifetime ocean odysseys at Laguna Phuket’s 23rd annual sea turtle release on Sunday, 2 April on Phuket Marine Biological Centre (PMBC) beachfront.

The beach ceremony was part of Laguna Phuket’s on-going environmental partnership with Phuket Marine Biological Centre and the 3rd Area Naval Command, Royal Thai Navy to help the plight of endangered sea turtles.

Ticket sales for turtle releases and proceeds of other activities, including merchandise sales, at the event will be put towards the Centre’s sea turtles conservation programmes.

Last Sunday was the 23rd Laguna Phuket Sea Turtle Release Ceremony in the on-going turtle conservation programme. To date, 2,065 sea turtles have been released by Laguna Phuket and 7 million Baht raised since 1994.

Over the course of 2 decades, around 5,000 people have participated in the initiative. “Our goal is not only to raise funds but to also raise the awareness,” said Mr. Anthony Loh, SAVP of Laguna Phuket,

“We hope that this experience will encourage the young generations to be lifelong advocates of wildlife conservation and environmental preservation.” he concluded.  

Green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas) can live for up to 60 years and spend their lives roaming the world’s oceans. Only the females ever come ashore again to nest.
