an experience that lasts for over a week month or years. usually a movie is good experience for the day ...a picnic may last for a week but the turtle walk is forever.
the night begins in the morning... yas past 12 . there is a talk with Q and A session. then the walk begins. discovering turtle nests and how the feel and how they are recovered is an amazing experience. our first nest had 138 eggs! a short nap right under the stars and the sound of the waves.
the little baby turtles being released in the sea. getting thrown back by the waves and going again ... a lesson to never give up! the hatchery where they recreate the nest in the exact dimensions as they were recovered from. will never forget that entire night.

The turtle hatching is a beautiful thing to experience.
My 8 year old son was very mesmerised.
Those little tiny turtles running towards the ocean waves in the evening was a sight which lasts a life time. It’s simple and yet amazing.
The team to conserve the olive ridley turtles is putting a great effort.
Number of hatchlings depend on the time of the season and varies.

A bit remote to find it.

We saw hatchlings being released into the ocean and not the mid night turtle walks for laying eggs.
Thats not done in April, but in feb March.

All in all good experience

Between the months of December and April each year, several thousand Olive Ridley turtles come to the sandy beaches along the outskirts of Chennai to lay their eggs. For nearly four decades now, several dozen volunteers of the Chennai Students Sea Conservation Network SSTCN meet at various spots along the coast to patrol the beaches at night. When they come across a turtle laying eggs, they mark the nest and collect the eggs for hatching in an incubator. 45 to 60 days later, the hatchlings are brought to the same spot and released close to the water's edge. Volunteers stand in the water with torches to guide the hatchlings towards the sea. This interference with nature is necessary because the beaches are not protected and human habitation has encroached almost up to the waterline. Google the SSTCN website for details of meeting points, contact numbers and times to visit. I participated in a walk that began at 11 pm and ended at around 6 am and covered around 7 km of beach. It was a mixed group of about 30 people of all ages. The walk began with a short introduction to nature conservation work, turtle habitats and species. The introduction was done in two language groups, for English and for Tamil speakers

we were able to catch the hatching season. the nesting season was over.
these bunch of volunteers is doing a great job of saving the olive ridley turtles.
however they encourage you to read all the FAQ on their site before asking any questions.
Slot more time to find this place as it looks like a small shak on the beach far down the road. Altough the road on the beach to the shak looks unmotorable, do not worry it is motorable.
Seeing those little hatchlings trying so hard to climb out and then seeing them run to the ocean waves is an experience.
One thing though there are not thousands or millions of hatchlings, its just a basket full so keep that in mind. We have steadfastly killed every possible lives around us and making them dwindle to as few as possible.

Every year from Each night during the nesting season, a group of college students would trudge along the coast looking for Olive Ridley turtle nests and relocate them to a hatchery. The female turtle digs a pit in the sand with her back flippers and drops about 50 to 100 eggs. After 40-50 days, the eggs hatch and the hatchlings instinctively turn towards the sea and find their way to the depths of the ocean. The walk is conducted for 7 km from Neelankarai to Besant Nagar from 11 pm and goes on till 5 am. They also conduct awareness programmes to educate the general public about the plight of these turtles. One can Go go participate in the above activity

Was looking for this type of activity. finally got a chance to be part of the same. The volunteers are having super knowledge about that. It was a very good experience walking from 12 am till 5 am in the beach and collected Turtle Eggs for keeping them hatched.

You have to know well in advance and join in. It is always in the night, so might not be suitable for younger children.

Held between January and April for the public on weekends, this is probably the best thing I have done in Chennai...in life infact!
I have walked in nights when there were nothing but dead turtles and the there were very few nights where we saw live nesting turtles (one amazing experience - there is no turning back from these walks once you witness them), few nests and hundreds of hatchlings. Mind you, I walked every sat night for those 4 months to witness all this. So, keep your expectation low, cause a turtle will nest only even it wants to.
Also, the volunteers are amazing - with real knowledge in them they have great life changing conversations and they do a thankless job on all our behalf.

I was lucky enough to be able to go on the turtle walk a few years ago and it was a wonderful experience! I would recommend everyone do it, especially those of you that have little ones. I will remind you though that its often based on chance (i went for the one organised by Croc bank), and they said that we had a lucky night, because there are times that you may not come across any eggs. Thankfully we did! It was lovely to help the baby turtles into the ocean! The guides were friendly and helpful, and answered all our questions
