The Laguna Phuket Turtle Release Fair, has raised more than 1 million baht over the last 15 years. The programme oversees a batch of turtles being released into the sea, each of which are fitted with satellite tracking devices.
The satellite tracking devices, enable data on their migration patterns to be collected as part of the Phuket Marine Biological Center's, "Turtle Research Programme".
Last year's ceremony saw the release of 100 young turtles being released into the sea at Sheraton Grande Laguna.
If you would like to experience the turtle's release this year, the ceremony takes places on 13th April 2011.
This eco tour makes for a great family day out in Phuket. Or if you are interested in marine biology this is perfect for you. There will also be fund-raising going on for the "Turtle Research Programme" and family games available.
