A sea turtle was found over the seashore barangay here in Tolosa, Leyte where i am assigned. It was a big sea turtle. Seemingly because of the big waves due to heavyrains, the sea turtle was pushed ashore. Obviously, the people who found it were properly educated to report sightings of these endangered species to the nearest authorities, they reported the matter to the police station. The latter, together with the Municipal Agirculture personnel fetched the sea turtle to the municipal building, while waiting for Department of Environment and Natural Resources personnel to get the found species. The sea turtle, following procedural requirement by the DENR, will be returned back to the sea, to its original habitat.
