Tangalle magistrate Mahi Wijeweera has ordered Tangalle police and Tangalle fisheries inspector to find out reasons for the death of sea turtles in the Southern Coastal Sea area and to provide a report to the Courts.

If the reason is due to involvement of humans, then the suspects have been ordered to be arrested by the magistrate.

The court order came after the Kalamatiya Wildlife Office notified the court that few bodies of dead turtles were discovered in the Southern Coastal sea area which was not due to natural causes.
