Following the Turtle Trail in Coastal Karnataka: Bangalore Times, 5th January 2018

The survival of the sea turtle is critically linked to the conservation of our environment. The huge number of deaths of these creatures, particularly during the nesting season is a key indicator that we need to relook at our conservation efforts, as well as the programmes in place to educate the fisherman community.

Beekeeping or apiculture is one of the world’s oldest occupations and has been in existence since antiquity. It is relatively inexpensive and hugely rewarding, as the benefits are many and varied. FSL-India decided to engage in beekeeping due to the increasing global problem caused by non-organic agriculture, i.e. the loss of pollinators, which are, just as the targeted pests, killed by the pesticides used.

Sea turtles are one of the very few animals to graze on seagrass and help maintain the health of the seagrass beds. Like normal lawn grass, seagrass needs to be constantly cut short to be healthy and help it grow across the ocean floor. Over the past decades, due to pollution, there has been a decline in seagrass beds, leading to a decline in the sea turtle population.
