Olive Ridley Turtle Eggs May Be Affected By The Rain

A lot of care has been taken to preserve and protectOlive Ridley turtle eggs at Goa beaches. Those in charge are a bit apprehensive that the recent unprecedented rain showers may affect the eggs’ incubation process.

The turtle eggs have been protected since the beginning of January bythe Canacona forest department’s wildlife division since the turtles made their first nest at Agonda beach. There was an increase in the presence of Olive Ridley turtles in Goa which made turtle lovers elated. Nineteen turtle pits at Agonda are being protected by forest officials. At 4 in the morning on Saturday, the latest pit with 133 eggs was relocated to the incubation site’s enclosures.  

Currently, Agonda beach has 2,113 eggs in 19 turtle pits. 37 hatchlings from Galgibaga beach’s first pit has already been released into the sea. It has two pits in total. These two Canacona beaches have 2,360 eggs and 21 turtle nesting pits in total.
