Dredging danger threatens turtle landing site
SAND dredging is destroying a known turtle landing site in Pasir Panjang, Segari, Manjung, say environmental bodies.
The activity, near the estuary of Sungai Puyu, was spotted by local fishermen who then informed several environmental non-governmental organisations.
Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM) president S.M. Mohamed Idris said the organisation is concerned with the activity as the area is one of the main turtle landing sites in Perak.
