As we all know, Puerto Princesa is a coastal city on Palawan Island in the Western Philippines. It’s a base for boat trips through the massive limestone caves and underground river of the biodiverse Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park. Dive sites are dotted around Puerto Princesa Bay, home to long-nosed dolphins, turtles, and rays. Close to the port is the 19th-century Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral, as of Wiki.

Based on the statement of the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development (PCSD), the turtle was found at the Beach at Nagtabon in the village of Bacungan.

Where in, the sea turtle weighed 130 kilograms. And with a carapace measured of 91 cm long and 83 cm wide.

The owner of the resort named Christian Kattinger, has reported about the beaching turtle.

Good thing, the turtle was returned to the sea by volunteers and local environmental officials.
