Fishermen urged to be mindful of leather back turtles during the nesting season

A proposal is being made for fishermen to consider using different techniques during the turtles nesting season.

The suggestion comes from Susan Lakhan President of Environment group Nature Seekers of Matura.

Over the years concerns have been raised about poaching of the endangered leather back turtles and the economic and environmental impacts of this development.

 

However, Ms Lakhan in a News Power Now interview said there are other options that can be used by fisher folk during the turtle nesting seasons that will help reduce incidents of by- catch.
