70,000 Sea Turtles Nest Undisturbed Thanks To COVID-19
Olive ridley sea turtles have made a striking comeback in the Indian state of Odisha recently thanks to the current coronavirus pandemic.
Over 70,000 of the beautiful sea turtles returned to their nesting grounds this year after skipping their annual migration and nesting last year.
Scientists weren’t unanimous in determining why the sea turtles didn’t return last time but theories range from climate change to natural disasters to most likely human interference on the beach.
The shelter in place orders that Odisha and most other Indian states have put in place due to COVID-19 have given the olive ridley sea turtles a chance to nest undisturbed for the first time in decades.
