An endangered green turtle was spotted at a beach near Sandspit, Manora on Monday morning.

An official of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Aijaz Ahmed said the turtle which reportedly visited the beach to lay an egg, measured 41 inches in length and weighed approximately 0.066 tons.

An IUCN official said beach visitors usually resort to harming turtles and their eggs hence a guard appointed by the organisation helped them safely make its way back to the sea.
