first_imgAlthough deathsand grave threats of marine animals, especially turtles, may possibly be causedby boats and ships due to its propellers, other factors could include humanintervention such as killing them to harvest their eggs for consumption and sellingthe carapace for souvenirs, getting tangled in fishing nets, and the presenceof plastics swept by our turtles. “Our Departmentalways supports the protection and conservation of our marine animals. It is agrieving moment to know some of the marine animal species dies in a violentway. We however continue with our conservation efforts to boost the turtlepopulation such as protecting their hatching areas. I therefore encourage all tostop throwing garbage into oceans that slowly but surely kill our marineanimals especially turtles,” said Department of Environment and NaturalResources regional executive director for Western Visayas Francisco E. Milla,Jr./PN A carcass ofa female Green sea turtle was found off shores of Fairways and Bluewater Boracayin Boracay Island at noontime on Jan. 2, 2020. It was identified as fairlydecomposed and has an unpleasant smell with its organs detached, coming out fromthe center of its carapace that had been sliced. Its death may have been possiblycaused by the propellers of boats or ships which crashed on its back, splittingit in two. The carcass was buried after the investigation conducted by theCommunity Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) in Boracay Island. It wasunfortunate to start the year witnessing a female Green sea turtle found deadin the shores of a resort in Boracay Island and a week later, another one was foundat Cauayan, Negros Occidental. IT’S A grievingsight ever to see carcasses especially to those animal lovers and advocates whohelp protect and conserve species and boost its population.

It isconsidered endangered (E) by the International Union for Conservation of Nature(IUCN). Photo shows a severely wounded green sea turtle found dead in the waters of Brgy.
