Olive Ridely Baby Turtles Released Into The Sea

Goa saw the miracle of life yet again on Sunday night at Galgibaga when the first nest of Olive Ridley turtles hatched. There were 36 charming little baby turtles who were released into the sea by the Goa forest department and students from the Morjim Sea Turtle Trust. “With the rain Goa experienced in the first week of January, naturalists assumed that the eggs in the turtle nest would get spoiled, but they miraculously survived. This is a huge success for Goa,” Sarita Fernandes, the trust’s managing trustee, stated.

Forest officials revealed that the second nest at Galgibaga is likely to hatch this week itself. Two Olive Ridley turtle pits have been protected this year which contains 247 eggs. One of them has already hatched. It is important to protect the species as it is estimated that only one out of 100 sea turtle hatchlings survive till they become adults.

Agonda beach has 18 protected nests. A bale of Olive Ridley turtles graced the beach with their presence in January which led to Agonda housing 1,923 eggs over a time span of 39 days. Morjim beach currently has 12 nests. The increase in turtles could be due to favourable weather.
