Kundapur is a town situated on the west coast of Karnataka, near the beach, and very close to the Western Ghats (a mountain ridge). The Western Ghats is India's prime zone for bio-diversity, known for the number of animal and plant species in this region.
In 2004, a Marine Turtle protection project was started here in co-operation with the Forest and Wildlife Department of the State of Karnataka. Over a 60-kilometer stretch of beach, surveys are conducted and the turtle nests are protected until the hatching of the eggs. Last year, more than 1500 baby turtles reached the ocean safely thanks to the efforts of international volunteers. This year again we continue these efforts. The projects will also focus on spreading awareness to the general public, fishermen community and in the schools about the importance of turtles in the bio-diversity. The volunteers will also be involved in building Turtle Information Center huts along the beach.
