新冠肺炎(武漢肺炎)令全球停擺,各地居民都留喺屋企,遊客數量自然大減!可能對人類嚟講係冇得出街好痛苦,但對其他生物嚟講可能係件好事,因為所有嘢終於可以重回正軌!

印度有個沙灘Rushikulya海岸係一種叫欖蠵龜(即係海龜)嘅繁殖地。一到繁殖期,呢啲海龜就會喺日頭浩浩蕩蕩咁一齊上岸產卵。不過之後因為遊客同捕獵者越嚟越多,為咗好好保護自己嘅BB,佢哋竟然改變習慣,到夜晚先產卵!

最近因為疫情,印度從3月24日開始全面封鎖21日,禁止市民出門,仲好早之前採取咗嚴格嘅旅遊管制,沙灘上唔再有遊客,海龜們終於可以喺日頭自由活動啦~

遊客大減,海龜們終於有返正常生活!相隔7年之後,佢哋第一次喺日頭上岸產卵!當地保育人員話,對上一次見到呢個景象已經係7年前。佢哋話,3月大概有成28萬隻欖蠵龜上岸產卵!場面非常壯觀,亦都為佢哋可以回復正常生態習慣而覺得感觸!

The arribada or the mass nesting of olive Ridleys is nothing short of magic. Olive Ridleys live in oceans and only come to land to nest. When the females grow up, they return to the same beaches to lay eggs. How they navigate back was a mystery for a long time but recent science suggests that individual beaches have magnetic fields unique to them. When the turtles hatch, these fields are imprinted into their brains, allowing them to sense it when they need to return. It’s a magnificent internal compass as accurate as the latitudes and longitudes used by humans. Read a spectacular story by Swati Thiyagarajan @swatithiyagarajan on the nesting phenomenon on our website. Link in bio. .

人類係時候反思吓究竟自己嘅行為為其他生物帶嚟咗幾大嘅影響!
