King Vajiralongkorn's July 28 birthday - Turtles today


CHONBURI, Thailand (Reuters) - Hundreds of people gathered at a beach in Thailand on Wednesday to release 1,066 turtles
into the sea as part of celebrations to mark the birthday of new King Maha Vajiralongkorn this week.
King Vajiralongkorn's July 28 birthday was announced by the military government as a public holiday this year.
Celebrations were expected to include merit-making ceremonies at Buddhist temples across Thailand and a mass alms-giving
event for more than 600 Buddhist monks at a public square in the capital, Bangkok, on Friday.

At the Sea Turtle Conservation Centre in Chonburi, around 75 km (47 miles) southeast of Bangkok, men and women
from the Royal Thai Navy, students and Thai celebrities released the 1,066 turtles into the sea.

The number 1,066 was chosen to symbolize the number 10 for King Rama X, as King Vajiralongkorn is known, and the
number 66, one more than his age, to wish the king longevity.

"The main event today is the release of the turtles, which also symbolizes longevity," said Athichanan Srisevok, a Thai actress and nature advocate.
