Olive Ridley Babies going to Sea

Conservation Tip! Release turtles on the shoreline (not directly into the ocean as this prevents the turtles from developing the memory required to return and lay eggs when they reach maturity). Years later, after travelling thousands of miles to distant feeding grounds, they return to their natal nesting beaches in Orissa and begin the cycle again.
