Newbie volunteers deface sea turtle
MetadataShow full item record
Members of a group of volunteers guarding against poaching in the seas have learned a valuable lesson on handling green sea turtles—don’t paint on their carapace. Bantay Dagat (sea watch) volunteers in Silay City, Negros Occidental, were reprimanded for marking the carapace of a sea turtle with paint instead of tagging the animal. The sea turtle was rescued by a fisherman. The green sea turtle, locally known as pawikan, was spotted by fisherman Rodrigo Giguera in the waters off Barangay Balaring in Silay City around 5 a.m. on Tuesday.
