Some baby turtles were released into the sea in Phang Nga as part of the conservation program co-arranged by the Royal Thai Navy and Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. The activity took place at Thab Lamu Naval Base earlier this week.

After the tsunami the Phang Nga Naval Bases’s sea turtles conservation centre built the nursing facilities before releasing the babies into the sea.

On this occasion the Unilever Company representative handed over a 200,000 baht cheque to the Phang Nga Naval Base Commander in support of the project, according to Andaman News.

The Navy set up the Sea Turtle conservation program since 1996 at Huyong and Similan Islands. After the tsunami, it set up the centre at Son-Ngam with around 8,000 baby turtles nursed each year.
