September 9, , am. A Burmese roofed turtle hatchling. A hatchling of Burmese roofed turtle. World News. Anthony Esguerra. Conservationists recreated their natural habitat using sandbanks as a place to nest.
They then monitored the site and collect their eggs so they could be looked after and incubated under natural conditions. Conservations will now look at the turtles which still live in the wild.
They think there are five to six adult females and maybe two males. There was a time when lots of these turtles were around. But because of hunting, electro-fishing and destruction of their natural habitat they weren't surviving.
A turtle with a permanent smile on its face now has good reason for its happy expression as it has been saved from near extinction. The Burmese roofed turtle has bulging eyes as well as its upturned lips and measures up to two foot long when fully grown.
Its numbers have grown upwards of 1, after an ambitious conservation programme spanning the last 20 years. The Burmese roofed turtle pictured has protruding eyes as well as its upturned lips and measures up to two foot long when fully grown.
Pictured: a Burmese roofed turtle egg. The species lives only in the river systems of Myanmar and in the year was being considered as a candidate for classification as extinct.
Soon afterwards, scientists chanced across two remnant populations of the animal in the wild while on field surveys.
These were located in the Dokhtawady and upper Chindwin Rivers and the individuals formed a last ditch breeding programme to save the species.
As a result, the animal is no longer threatened with oblivion and is not considered to be at risk. Pictured, the scene as scientists track a nest along the Chindwin River.
Eggs are taken from the beach and hatched in the relative safety of a conservation facility. Steven G. Platt, a herpetologist at the Wildlife Conservation Society, led the campaign to set up the breeding programme.
Most of the animals are kept in the breeding programme in captivity but a handful have been released into the wild over the last five years.
