‘Recurrence needs research’

As per past records, mass nesting of olive ridleys had never occurred during the month of April on Odisha coast. Reason behind this late recurrence of mass nesting needs research by wildlife experts, said the DFO.

In 2006, Rushikulya rookery had witnessed two phases of mass nesting of olive ridley turtles, but at short interval. Similar trend also occurred in 2009, when mass nesting took place in February as well as in March. But in both these cases second phase of mass nesting had occurred when eggs laid by the first group of turtles were incubating under the sand. However, mass nesting had never occurred during mass hatching on this coast.
