Green Sea Turtle Release
Flying Scouts Green Sea Turtle Release, April 2013
Flying Scouts Green Sea Turtle Release
Taking time out from flying survey’s, The Flying Scouts, Ed & Tom were invited to join in releasing Green Sea Turtles on Similan Island 1, Huyong Island. This mission is conducted jointly between the Marine Department, and the Thai Royal Navy, who are responsible for the Similan Islands.
The Royal Thai Navy Landing Craft – Wangnoi was used to transport the Sea Turtles.
The Green Sea Turtle, one of four species native to Thailand, is an endangered animal. The Flying Scouts, survey these animals from the air when looking for Dugongs. They are very shy, and quickly dive when they see the shadow of the aircraft, fearing it is a bird of prey.
