Dead sea turtle found in Cadiz

A DEAD olive ridley sea turtle has been washed ashore in Cadiz City in Negros Occidental Monday morning.

Edgardo Rostata, chief of Community Environment and Natural Resources Office in Cadiz City, said the sea turtle, locally known as “pawikan,” was found by a resident at Purok Villa Consing in Barangay Zone 4 around 7:30 a.m.

He said they have yet to determine how the sea turtle died, adding that it was already in a state of decomposition when it was found.

It was then buried near the area by personnel of the City Agriculture Office, he said.

The sea turtle was also injured on its left fin, Rostata said.

He said the endangered animal, which has a width of 64 centimeter, could have been dead for two days already before it washed ashore.

No markings were found on the animal.

Investigation of the incident is still ongoing, Rostata said.
