And the turtles in Goa said ‘All’s well that ends well’

And the turtles in Goa said ‘All’s well that ends well’. The Olive Ridley turtle nesting season came to an end last month. The last pit to hatch was at Agonda beach which released 53 hatchlings.

The turtle hatcheries at Galgibaga and Agonda had around 4,163 eggs. From this, 3,673 hatchlings were released into the sea to live their lives. The last 53 turtles from Agonda went into the sea on May 30. In Agonda, 3000 eggs were hatched and more than 2,700 were released. Galgibaga had more than 1000 eggs out of which 938 baby Olive Ridley turtles walked into the sea.

The Olive Ridley season begins in November-December and ends in mid-May. The Goa forest guards actively watch spots where the turtles lay their eggs. They come mostly after midnight or early morning. On 23 December 2021, the first Olive Ridley turtles of the season arrived at Galgibaga beach.
