Tour to Burhanpur 2018

Tour to Burhanpur

About the Burhanpur -

The Historic city of Burhanpur is famous for its many beautiful monuments that lie scattered across the city. Most of the monuments lie in a state of ruins but they give us a fine idea of the grandeur of the Mughal Rule. The city was considered to be the Gateway to the South. A lesser known fact about the city is that Mumtaz Mahal breathed her last in this city and was entombed across the river Tapti before her tomb was shifted to The Taj Mahal in Agra.

Velas Turtle Festival 2018

Velas Turtles Hatching Morning

 

Maharashtra is blessed with 720 kms long coastline. Shared with Konkan, Thane, and Ratnagiri also Sindhudurg districts. Many marine creatures come visit. However, the exact count and type are unknown. As from what is believed there is not a detailed study available. In the year 2000-01, it was found that a species of turtle, Olive Ridley is a prominent visitor to the shores of Maharashtra for breeding purposes. Other species are the Green Turtle, Hawksbill and the Leatherback. A lot of the other information is already available online, like what does turtles eat, how a turtle looks like. The difference between a turtle, tortoise and a terrapin.

Why Velas Turtle Festival?

Velas is a small fishing village on the western coast of Maharashtra. About 220 kms away from Mumbai, a little over a hundred houses on the coast of the Arabian Sea. It is that time of the year again - when a tiny grey head pokes out of the golden sand and takes a breath of the fresh salty air of the Arabian Sea. It is a culmination of a lengthy process, which started when, under the cover of darkness, it’s mother emerged out from the rolling waves to lay her heap of 100-120 eggs on the sandy beach. Oblivious to the world that awaits it outside it’s sandy cocoon, the tiny hatchling is soon followed by a hundred others, all crawling their way towards the brightest lights of the horizon- in this case, the sea. TreksandTrails, India invites you to this journey from the nest to the sea which draws oohs and aahs from tourists - each of whom is gathered on the shore to witness this miracle of Nature. The location is Velas, a remote village in Mandangad taluka in Ratnagiri district approx. a 6 hour drive from Mumbai.

Kindly Note:
  • Travelling by A/C Bus
  • Hatchling sighting is not guaranteed.
  • Maximum batch size is 25 travellers on first come first basis.
  • Pick up and Drop at centralized locations only.

NGO - Sahyadri Nisarg Mitra

 

TreksandTrails, India sincerely appreciates the great efforts been undertaken by local NGO - Sahyadri Nisarg Mitra, as they have borne fruit since 2002, each year all the nests on the western coast at Velas, Murud, Harnai, Dapoli and other sites are carefully protected and conserved to ensure both natural and human threats are reduced. All the eggs laid on the beach are collected and placed in a common hatchery which is barricaded from all sides and is guarded throughout the day. Average eggs laid by a female turtle is 100. The incubation time required for these eggs is between 50 – 55 days. 

Once the emerging of the hatchling begins, their moments creates small depression in the sand, these mark increase as the days go by. Thus experts can then determine the activity in the nest. One the hatchling emergence from the nest, it’s very important to release it into the sea. Hence each morning at 07:00 and evening at 17:30 - 18:00 the baskets covering the lid are open to check if any turtles have hatched if they have they are counted and carefully laid in another basket and taken closer to the sea. They are then gently placed on the sand and they slowly make their way to the water. Their first baby steps are not only endearing to watch but also important if it is a female, as she records in her memory the site of her birth only to return here after 10 - 15 years to lay her eggs.

Listed here are a few threats / dangers to Turtles:

  • Poaching of eggs
  • Natural Predators
  • Trapped in fishing nets
  • Sand excavations.
  • Artificial bunds/walls/tadpoles built to prevent costal land from erosion.
  • Unnatural plantations along the coastline.
  • Illuminations along the coastline.
  • Ports and Harbours, Tourism.
  • Pollution both land and water.
