Save Turtles – Animal Welfare | Turtle Walks | Chennai

Only one in in 4000 Olive Ridley turtles survive to adulthood, you can help save them!

Turtles

Turtles comes to land only when there is no light or human habitat around. They lay around 100 eggs and close it with mud. Unfortunately,dogs and people in coastal area harm the eggs. So volunteers are needed to recover these eggs.

The recovered eggs are protected by several hatcheries working along the coast, after 48 days those eggs turn to hatchlings and swim their way back to ocean with help of star light. They learn the magnetic signature of their birth place during their journey from sand to sea. When these turtles become adults they will return back to the same coast using the magnetic signature they learnt to lay their eggs (Natal homing).
