Annual Laguna Phuket Turtle Release ceremony

Organised by Laguna Phuket, the Turtle Release ceremony is an ongoing effort to protect Thailand’s endangered sea turtles. On 3 April 2009, young participants from the Seedlings programme were invited to join in the festivities and play their part in turtle conservation. The children were given the rare opportunity to hold the young hatchlings in their hands before an emotional send-off that saw them disappear from the shoreline and into the Andaman Sea.
