32 Hawksbill turtle hatchlings being guided into sea at East Coast is the most heartwarming thing you'll see today

Here's a sight in Singapore that will make you go 'awwww'.

On Aug 16, officials from the National Parks Board (NParks) as well as members of the public helped guide 32 Hawksbill turtle hatchlings into the sea at East Coast Park.

In a Facebook post, NParks said that they had earlier been notified by park visitors about the presence of the marine creatures.

Thereafter, NParks staff, along with members of the public, transported the baby turtles to a more suitable location before guiding them into the sea as the streetlights at the park were deemed too distracting for the hatchlings. 

Read a caption on a photo and video posted on NParks' Facebook page:

"We are encouraged by the community's efforts in helping these 32 young hatchlings start on their life journey!"

NParks also issued a reminder to the public about the dos and don'ts with regard to sightings of turtle hatchlings.

They elaborated:

"We would also like to take this opportunity to remind members of the public to contact the NParks helpline (1800-471-7300), and to keep their distance and speak softly when a turtle is sighted. 

"Touching the turtle may scare or provoke it. 

"Similarly, one should not handle the eggs as that might damage them.
