Olive Ridley turtles are a species of sea turtle that are found in warm and tropical waters around the world. They are named for the greenish color of their skin and shell, which can appear olive in some lights. These turtles are considered one of the smallest of the sea turtles, with adults typically measuring around 2 to 2.5 feet in length and weighing between 75 and 100 pounds. ridley turtles are known for their unique nesting behaviour, which is called arribada. During an arribada, thousands of female turtles will come ashore at the same time and burrow about 30-40 cm deep to lay about 120-130 eggs on the same beach. Incubation takes about 40 48 days. This usually happens once or twice a year, with the largest arribadas occurring in Costa Rica and India. Despite their wide distribution, olive ridley turtles are considered to be a vulnerable species due to threats such as habitat loss, pollution, and incidental capture in fishing gear. Conservation efforts are underway around the world to protect these turtles and their nesting beaches, including measures such as limiting fishing activity in key areas and implementing beach management practices to minimize disturbance to nesting females. In this Honnavara region, responsible active citizenry and pro-active departmental actives were observed.

The College of Fisheries has initiated “Turtle Conservation Group” to create awareness on their conservation.
