Rough waves erode Southern coast

Rough sea waves experienced in the Southern seas had not only caused coastal erosion in the South, extending from Matara to Midigama, but also swept away turtle eggs conserved and maintained by Wildlife officers, Wildlife Department sources said.

Sources said these hatcheries were conserved with great effort through 'round-the-clock vigil, to protect them from racketeers and canines in the area.

However, the turtle egg hatchery enclosures maintained by the Mirissa Navy camp and coast conservation officers, had been safeguarded due to timely action by officers, to put up sand bags in order to counter the high tides.
