Coastal security compulsion has forced the authorities not to go ahead with live telecast of mass nesting of Olive Ridley turtles at a rookery in Odisha close to the defence installation site, forest officials said on Tuesday.
Ahead of the mass nesting of Olive Ridley turtles, wildlife officials have detected sporadic nesting by them at Gahirmatha nesting ground in Odisha, the world's largest known rookery of these marine animals.
Pairs of mating olive ridley sea turtles have begun emerging on seawaters off Gahirmatha marine sanctuary coast in Odisha, marking the commencement of breeding and nesting season of these endangered aquatic animals.
