MetadataShow full item record
FOR hundreds of years, marine turtles lived in the vast oceans but they coexist with humans in many countries and shores each time they visit land. The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) had reported many sightings of marine turtles nesting in Western Visayas. Boracay Island, for one, has been tagged as the “turtle haven” because of the simultaneous releases and discovery of turtle nesting sites in the island. Ellen Flor Solis of the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center noted that this is the second Leatherback turtle that was reported rescued in Panay Island.
