Thai Mueang Beach Thai Mueang Beach, is protected primarily as a nesting site for 2 species of sea turtles the Leatherback and the Olive Ridley. The females come ashore to lay their eggs between November and April. Unfortunately sea turtles are now very rare, and only a few come ashore.

In the nesting season, the beach is patrolled by park staff who remove the eggs from the nests they find and take them to a nursery (on the beach by the sentry box). This is done because the eggs are considered good to eat and fetch a high price. Nests left on the beach would be poached.

The eggs incubate for about 60 days. The hatchlings are released naturally into the sea as soon as they are born. Please do not go out looking for turtles on your own. You are welcome to join a patrol ask a ranger at the office. If you are interested in learning more about sea turtles, there are leaflets at the office.
