KUALA TERENGGANU: Another green turtle was found dead on Kijal Beach near Kemaman.
The carcass of the male turtle was found yesterday morning by Roslan Muhammad, 54, when he was collecting turtle eggs on the beach at 8.30am.
This is the fourth carcass of the green turtle species found on the beach so far this year.
“Based on its physical condition, I estimate that the turtle is between 60 and 80 years old. It is believed to have drowned after being trapped in a net,” Roslan told Bernama.
The first turtle death was reported on the same beach on Jan 30, followed by two more cases on Jan 31 and Feb 14.
