Record breaking number of Olive Ridley nests after 2 decades!

Some feel-good news for the day… Better methods at Morjim beach has led to a higher number of Olive Ridley turtle nests. There were 27 nests last year, but this time there are 43! Each nest contains 100-140 eggs.

This is the first time since the year 1999 that there have been so many nests! Forest officials made many changes at the nesting site which could be the reason for this.

Firstly, all beach shacks have been set up on stilts to ensure that the sand dunes aren’t disturbed and no vibrations are transferred to the ground. After 8 pm direct lighting isn’t allowed on the beach. Forest officials are working with shack owners and locals to take up turtle-friendly measures.
