Abstract

Olive Ridley sea turtles and vultures are two species that were on the verge of extinction due to various factors such as habitat loss, hunting, and human intervention. The Government of India put policies in place to protect these species, and the efforts paid off. The government-imposed restrictions on Olive Ridley sea turtles included the use of turtle excluder devices in fishing gear and the establishment of protected zones along the coast. These precautions were required since the mortality rate of Olive Ridley turtles is increased by their propensity to be entangled in fishing nets. To allow turtles to escape, turtle excluder devices are fastened to fishing nets. India is one of the nations having the largest populations of Olive Ridley turtles worldwide. Since visitors come to see the turtles’ nesting and hatching, they have a considerable economic impact.
