Cyclone Remal plays havoc with Emergence of Olive Ridley Hatchlings

Kendrapara, May 26 (UNI) The adverse weather conditions and torrential rain caused by Cyclone Remal in the Bay of Bengal have severely disrupted the emergence of Olive Ridley turtle hatchlings at the mass nesting sites of Nasi-2, the world's largest rookery of the species in Odisha.
DFO of Rajnagar Mangrove (forest) and Wildlife Division, Sudarshan Gopinath Jadav, said the turbulent sea, along with high tides due to Cyclone Remal, washed away several eggs. The incessant rain also damaged the turtle eggs, he added.
Official sources said about 1.20 lakh Olive Ridley sea turtle hatchlings emerged from the eggs at the mass nesting sites of Nasi-2 three days ago. However, the prevailing adverse weather conditions due to Cyclone Remal have halted the emergence of the baby hatchlings from the pits.
