Rare Turtle Returns Home To Lay Eggs, Only See her Former Nest Becomes an Airport Runway in Maldives

A rare turtle returns home to lay eggs, but finds her former nest has become an airport runway in the Maldives. The endangered green sea turtle was discovered laying eggs on the tarmac. Sea turtles often return to the same beach where they were born to lay eggs, and this turtle was likely hatched on the now runway beach. Despite the construction, other sea turtles continue to come and lay their eggs. Activists are working to find a solution and protect these turtles from harm.
