Did you know that 898 Olive Ridley turtle eggs are being protected in Canacona? These eggs belong to two turtle pits at Galgibaga beach and eight pits at Agonda. One Agonda pit hasn’t been opened yet.

The Canacona range forest officer is quite pleased that these lovable creatures seem to like coming to Agonda beach to lay their eggs even though there are some disturbances. The first turtle visited Agonda beach on the last day of 2021. It laid 118 eggs.

The beautiful Galgibaga beach got its first Olive Ridley turtle on January 3. There are a total of 172 eggs here.
