A recovery programme for olive ridley Lepidochelys olivacea was started along the Madras Coast by the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute in 1977 and in the course of 1977-78 to 1982-83 seasons, useful data have been collected through the setting up of a turtle hatchery. This paper embodies information on nesting behaviour of olive ridley, clutch size.incubation period, emergence and release of hatchlings. The constraints and problems encountered in the hatchery programme are also discussed.
