Season of Turtle walks in Chennai

The Olive Ridley sea turtles land on the shores of Chennai beach between December and March to lay their eggs.
During this season, Madras Crocodile Bank Trust organises Turtle Walks - a program designed to promote Sea turtle awareness that includes introduction to the Sea turtles, informative talks and a long walk on the beach stretch adjacent to the Croc Bank. There are great chances to actually see a female Sea turtle come ashore and lay eggs!

To register and for further information, contact Madras Crocodile Bank at Phone number 2747 2447 (between 10am – 5.30 pm)
