Early sea turtle nesting
This year’s first sea turtle nest was found and relocated near Maravanthe beach, North of Kundapur. Usually Sea Tutles nest between the month of October to January in this part of the west coast. Since monsoon is not yet over, there are chances of sweet water entering the nest and destroying it. It is a challenge for us to protect this nest against the rain. Last year some of the nests totally/partially failed to hatch because of the heavy rainfall at the end of September.
