Nature has a large array of wonderful phenomena tucked in her sleeves that fascinate us. One such captivating wonder is the olive ridley turtle. These turtles come to the shore every year to lay and nest their eggs. The nesting process known as Arribada involves thousands of Olive Ridleys swimming up on the shores and preparing cozy nests in the sand for their little ones. A clip was posted by IFS officer Susanta Nanda that shows the outcome of the mass nesting process. Shot on the Gahirmatha rookery, Odisha, the clip gives a glimpse of the tiny baby turtles.
Nanda posted a clip in March where he showed the gathering of adult turtles on a beach of Odisha.
