SUBIC BAY FREEPORT — At least 18 newly hatched olive ridley turtles (Lepidochelys olivacea) were released Tuesday into Subic Bay.

It was the first batch of baby sea turtles (pawikan) returned to their natural habitat ahead of the amihan season after an adult marine turtle laid eggs on July 30.

The resort has released 8,671 sea turtle hatchlings since it opened in 2012. INQ
