Turtle Nesting

Once every year, the Olive Ridley Turtles found off Goa’s coast, head to the shore for nesting. Morjim, Galgibag and Agonda beaches see the most nestings.

The turtles lay hundreds of eggs. On hatching, the hatchlings head back to sea. The entire process takes place under the careful watch of conservationists who ensure no one can cause the turtles any harm. Do try and catch this spectacle unfold the next time you are in Goa.
