We have been seeing many unfortunate incidents that’s causing harm to animals and most of them are human-created. It’s high time we take responsibilities for our reactions and behave in a way that doesn’t disturb other living beings.
Recently, people were upset after seeing images of turtle in the Maldives laying eggs on a runway, which was actually a beach spot earlier.
The endangered turtle obviously didn’t realize the change and laid eggs on the tarmac. Sea turtles are known to returning to the exact same beach where they hatched at to lay their eggs.
A source for the Maafaru Island Council has told the: “Despite the construction of the runway, the frequency with which turtles visit the island for nesting purposes has not decreased.”
While it might not have decreased recently, who knows how much damage this will do for future generations.
The runway could probably result in more damage as it has not yet been completed. A hotel and resort are being planned as well, which naturally means more trouble for the turtles.
Hopefully, we wake up to the reality and realize our responsibility before it’s too late. The concerned authorities need to take action in protecting these creatures, after all, even they have the right to live in this world.
