Turtle population healthy: MES

June 29, 2012 6:30 pm

The turtle population in the Mamanuca group is healthy.

According to the Mamanuca Environment Society (MES) – this is amazing given that the turtle is a local delicacy.

MES Project Officer Betani Salusalu says people in the local communities were educated on turtle harvesting, nesting and the need for conservation.

“As of today – the turtle numbers have increased dramatically. Turtles are everywhere and that’s amazing.”

Yesterday – the MES launched their ‘Mamanuca Sea Turtle Conservation Project’- by releasing three turtles out to the open sea.
