Olive Ridley Turtle

The Olive Ridley Turtle (Lepidochelys olivacea) comes often to Rekawa Beach, especially from November to February. This is a relatively small turtle, measuring 55 till 70 centimetre and weighing 35 till 45 kilos. The Olive Ridley is almost dancing when she closes her nest. Previously the Olive Ridley Turtle was the most common turtle on Rekawa beach, but now its conservation status is vulnerable.
