Along the Konkan Coast of Maharashtra villagers come together and work towards turtle conservation. February to May it was found that Olive Ridley Turtle is a prominent visitor to the shores of Maharashtra for breeding purposes. 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. Treks and Trails, India invites you to this journey from the nest to the sea which draws oohs and aahs from tourists
