Conserve the Sea Turtle | FSL-WC-228 | 2024-01-08 - 2024-01-21 | ENVI,CULT,KIDS | Age: 18 - 65

Work: The beaches of Kundapur are among the nesting areas of the Olive Ridley and Green Sea Turtles, in India. During the mating season, the female turtles come to shore to lay their eggs in the dead of night. These eggs are prized as a delicacy by the local people, who used to sell them in the open market. Depredations by dogs, crows and other predators, as well as infrastructure development contributed to a slow decrease in the sea turtle population. In 2005, FSL India (Field Services & inter-cultural Learning) started our Sea Turtle Conservation Project in co-operation with the Forest Department of the Karnataka State Government, in the Kundapur taluk of Udupi District, through the implementation of VFC (Village Forest Committee) and MTCI (Maravanthe Turtle Conservation Initiative). FSL India operates the STC project over a 60 km stretch along the coastline, which is divided into 12 zones of 5 kms each with a contact person appointed for each zone. The Camp: FSL India creates awareness for the fishermen community and schoolchildren regarding conservation of the Sea Turtle, through talks, puppet shows and mural paintings at more than 50 schools during the season. Every year, 1 Turtle Information Centre is built every 5 kms along the beach, to provide information to the local communities. Beach work and cleanups are organised on a regular basis. Activities: • Plastic and other non-degradable waste is a huge hazard to marine life. Join us on a beach walk and help clean up the surrounding beaches • Meet the stalwarts of the fisherman community, listen to fishing yarns, talk to them about sea turtle conservation • Educate the locals on the importance of the sea turtle in the marine life cycle • Paint to your heart’s content, create beautiful murals on sea turtle conservation • Help to conduct an awareness rally at the fishing harbour and classes at the nearby schools around the sea turtle area, to conduct awareness • Building a Turtle Information Centre at the beach is a vital part of our campaign to create awareness on sea turtle conservation for beachgoers.
