Lucena City—Environmentalists have asked officials in Sariaya town in Quezon province to declare areas in the municipality as “protected nesting sites” for endangered sea turtles which lay eggs on their shoreline along the Tayabas Bay every year. Once declared a protected site, the place will be protected against sand quarrying, mangrove and beach forest cutting, coral poaching and all other forms of environmentally destructive activities.
