Chevron to keep Olive-Ridley sea turtle nesting area protected
MetadataShow full item record
Multiple Olive-Ridley sea turtles have begun to nest as a result of Caltex brand marketer Chevron Philippines, Inc. (CPI)'s San Pascual coastal cleanup during the annual Week of Caring (WOC) held every September. With two sea turtles nest sightings along the San Pascual coastline to date, CPI has been ramping up efforts to ensure that nesting sites while taking extra care not to disturb the eggs, fenced the areas, and kept the sites safe from tidal waves. The San Pascual nesting activity is the latest since the nesting activity along the Lagnas River shoreline in 2013. A "talisay" tree marks the area where Olive-Ridley sea turtles have laid their eggs.
