The coronavirus epidemic is going to bring a different kind of relief to the natural environment. Corona has reduced pollution due to which the biodiversity is living independently.
Due to prevailing the excellent environment for COVID 19 lockdown, a record amount of tortoise eggs has collected by the 5 ex-situ Turtles Conservation Center of Mather Bunia, Patuakhali, Bangladesh this year under the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change.
And from that eggs, the baby tortoises have been reproduced and released into the sea. In comparison to the last year, a record number of eggs have collected in 5 turtle conservation centers under Patuakhali, Bangladesh this year.

A total of 13,189 tortoise eggs have received in 5 centers. And this year 6 thousand 925 tortoise babies have been released.
The Department of the Environment claims that the arrival of mother tortoises has increased as a result of reduced human nuisance and reduced pollution at the lockdown.
As a result of an increase in the mother turtle’s arrival, many more eggs have been found this year than other years.
