Last week GVI visited ‘Phang Nga Coastal Fisheries Research and Development Centre’ in Thai Muang. The focus of the day’s work was on the centers turtle population, which includes Green, Hawksbill, Olive Ridley and three endandgered baby Leatherback turtles. Volunteers assisted with the daily cleaning of the turtles tanks, which consists of draining, scrubbing and refilling the pits.

Volunteers then assisted with the physical cleaning and disinfecting of each individual turtle.

They were also fortunate enough to see the centers three baby leatherback turtles, a very rare and endangered species in Thailand.

GVI is hoping to get back to the center over the next couple of weeks to work in some of the other areas of the center.

Until next time….go team conservation!
