At 7:30am today, officials moved the eggs as the spot where they were found was on a footpath to the beach thus preventing hunters getting to them.

Mr Paisan reported that at 7:30am on Mar 13 officials were patrolling on the beach at Koh Si and found 129 see turtle eggs near the area where a sea turtle was found on Mar 12.

It was believed that it was a different sea turtle because the spot was smaller. Official moved the eggs to the safe place because eggs were found on the pathway to the beach. (See story here.)
