The lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic seems to have had a positive impact on wildlife around the world. Thailand has seen the largest number of turtle nests in two decades, shared the Mai Khao Marine Turtle Foundation. Researchers discovered 11 nests of rare leatherback sea turtles in Phuket on beaches bereft of tourists. This is a very good sign, said authorities as many areas for spawning have been destroyed by humans. Leatherbacks are the world’s largest sea turtles. They are considered endangered in Thailand, and listed as a vulnerable species globally by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
