Riddle of the Ridley
The 'arribada' or arrival of thousands of olive ridley sea turtles for mass nesting on some beaches of Orissa is one of nature's amazing spectacles. Yet thousands of these gentle reptiles die every year due to callous fishing practices and human apathy. Through unique photographs, ridley facts, and a narrative born out of firsthand experience, award-winning wildlife film-maker Shekar Dattatri makes an impassioned plea to keep the beaches safe and free for the olive ridley.
