EPA and Save My Future teamed up to save a 70 puonder at the Congo Town lagoon.
Mr. Nyenkan, EPA’s Acting Executive Director, said a recent survey conducted by Save My Future Foundation showed that five of the world’s six species of turtles are found in Liberia.
The Acting EPA boss the turtle was caught by some fishermen in a Green Fishing Net and brought to shore.
This is the second time that a sea turtle is redeemed and repatriated to its natural habitat by the Environmental Protection Agency.
Job well done. And children if you find turtle eggs leave them to grow up.
