Alyaqadhan Al Qasmi, was on a trip with his friends to Ras Al Hadd in wilayat of Sur. He woke up one morning and found the house yard full of young turtles that had crawled into the house instead of heading for the sea.

"I think that happened because last night the sky was dark so the baby turtles after hatching from their eggs followed the light of the houses instead of following the moonlight towards the sea. The turtles were everywhere, in the area between the houses and on the road as well."

After collecting the turtles from the house, Al Qasmi drove them in his car to the sea, letting them free in the water.
