After Dolphins Returned To Venice, Now Rare Species Of Turtles Filled Empty Tourist Beaches in Thailand
Rare species of turtles filled Thai beaches, empty without tourists during the coronavirus pandemic. On Tuesday, April 21, reports The Sun.
Reptiles have begun massively building nests on the popular beaches of Phuket in Thailand. According to local ecologists, such a phenomenon has not been noticed there for 20 years.
According to the director of the Phuket Marine Biological Center, 11 nests were found on the island, which can be considered a good sign, since "many areas of spawning were previously destroyed by people."
“Last year we did not have such a large number of eggs laid, because the turtles died when they fell into fishing gear,” the biologist said.
In March, it was reported that wild animals began to return to cities that were empty due to quarantine measures designed to curb the spread of coronavirus infection.
For example, cougars roam the streets of the American city of Boulder in Colorado, crocodiles settled on the beaches of Mexico, and a herd of orphaned goats crept into one of the cities of Wales.
Recently, Bemorepanda has reported that many animals, such as deers, pigs, sheeps and horses have returned back to the city streets, which caused a lot of amusement among many internet users.
