The Odisha coast is the one of the main mass nesting center in the world map for the Olive Ridley turtle since time immemorial. Three sites in the coastal zone of Odisha is famous in the world for mass nesting of turtle i.e. Gahiramatha, Devi Mouth and Rushikulya Mouth. But nearly 7000 nos. of Olive Ridley every year were pushed to death by the human being for their sheer selfishness.
