This noble effort was realized when two bantay dagat personnel discovered the hatchlings while on a routinary foot patrol along the shoreline of said barangay.

In order to protect the hatchlings from stray animals, they collected the turtles and gave it to the fish warden who immediately called CENRO RM for assistance.

Responding CENRO personnel recovered 90 turtle hatchlings and immediately released them back to the sea.
