Worry had settled in as there was a delay in the turtle nesting season at Agonda and Galgibaga beaches. Finally, forest officials breathed a happy sigh of relief as Olive Ridley turtles visited the beaches, walked with their little turtle legs, and left 17 nests. But… something was different.
Usually, the turtles would travel solo. On February 10, four of them came to Agonda and laid 454 eggs! A whole swarm of turtles visited over the past few weeks. This surprised the officials.
The first turtle had come to Agonda on the last day of 2021. The last turtle came early morning on Saturday and laid 53 eggs. The forest personnel then relocate the eggs to a protected area.
