Anjarle Turtle Festival

Anjarle Turtle Festival Pune Mumbai
Anjarle is small village on the west coast of Maharashtra well known for its beaches. These beaches like few others are also home to Olive Ridley turtles. These turtles lay eggs during winter. The eggs start hatching after 50 to 55 days and a life begins. The mother turtle lays eggs only on the beach where she was born and goes away. The turtles never look after the eggs or the offspring.

Hence, the survival of the specie has become difficult and are on the verge of extinction. Thus, the villagers formed a body “Kasav Mitra Mandal” and started with the herculean task of conservation. Accordingly since 2018, the Turtle Festival at Anjarle started taking shape. The purpose of the festival is twofold, first to bring awareness about Olive Ridley Turtles and nature as a whole and second being to provide employment opportunities to the locals.

We at Zenith Odysseys are going to Anjarle on 12 April & Returning on 14th. Hop in if you are willing to support the green earth.
