Tyre Beach Nature Reserve, along the coast of the southern city, is known for being the site where, every year without fail, sea turtles come to the shore to lay their eggs. Ahead of National Sea Turtle Day, the manager of the reserve, Hasan Hamza, explained that turtles typically come to lay their eggs toward the end of May by digging a hole in the sand about 60 centimeters deep in which around 80 eggs are laid. Workers at the Tyre Beach Nature Reserve survey the shore in order to locate the turtles' nests and mark them to alert people they exist.One turtle eats about 15 jellyfish a day.
