In November, the weather remains hot in Sansha, a coastal city of China's tropical Hainan province. However, under the scorching sun, a host of private "coastguards" patrolled the beach, concentrating on the movements of sea turtles while evaluating changes in the local environment.

"The most difficult moment concerning a sea turtle's lifeline is when the creature hatches and manages to crawl from sand to sea," said Huang Hongbo, chief of Sansha's North Qilianyu Island, a 0.4-square-kilometer islet that sea turtles have turned into a prime nesting place.

Huang can still remember how thriving sea turtles were on North Qilianyu in 1967, when ocean pollution and excessive fishing were not as devastating as they are today.

To address the grim prospect of sea turtles becoming extinct, China has categorized them as subject to class-II [endangered species] protection.

In 2012, Sansha created an encircled area as a nature reserve for sea turtles to escape from external disturbances.

According to Huang, sea turtles are used to laying eggs on the spot where they were born after reaching adulthood around the age of 20. "Sea turtles love to lay eggs deep at night, however, the processes can be easily disturbed by the differentiation of sand qualities, height of the tide, sounds and streams of light," he added.
