This turtle, belonging to a species of Chelonia Mydas, weighs about 7 kg and still in good health condition. The fisherman informed immediately to the staff of MPA for attaching tracking tag and giving it back to the sea. A report shows that this is the sixth turtle given back to nature by fishermen in Cham Island this year. That brings bright signals for a project of conserving and restoring sea turtles in Cham Island which has started from 2016 and commanded by Hoi An People's Commitee.
