Abstract

A rare sight of crawling young ones of the marine Olive ridley turtle was seen at Puthen Kadappuram, Thrissur on 22-02-2010. There were 110 nesting eggs which were laid 47 days back in a two feet deep trench about 50 m away from the sea. These eggs were monitored by the local turtle conservation committee and 85 freshly hatched baby turtles were carefully released to the sea at sunrise.
