Sixty-five green sea turtle (Cheloniamydas) hatchlings and three juvenile hawksbill turtles (Eretmochelys imbricate) were recently released on the shores of Barangay Madrangca of this capital town. Being in a province with a Pawikan Conservation Program, residents of Barangay Madrangca, together with the local government unit of San Jose, took care of the turtle eggs and protected them from threats upon their discovery near the shorelines. After the eggs hatched, the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office facilitated the hatchlings’ release.
