500 Green Turtle Hatchlings Released
In the midst of the worldwide Covid pandemic, it is heartening to hear stories of the natural world going on as normal – especially from places that are popular destinations for divers. Even more so when it concerns baby turtles.
A conservation organisation in Sabah, Malaysia has taken a unique way of bringing these uplifting stories to many, by livestreaming turtle hatchling releases online.
“If the recent covid lockdown means that we can’t do it in person – we will find other ways to do so. Livestreaming the turtle releases is an easy way to remind people of the beauty of the world out there, keep spirits up and bear in mind that when this crisis is over, we can return to places we love.” – David McCann
