Turtle Nesting

Four species of sea turtles are found along the coast of Andaman and Nicobar Islands : Leatherback [ Dermochelys coriacea ], Hawksbill [ Eretmochelys imbricata ], Green Turtle and Olive ridley [ Lepidochelys olivacea ]. The Sea turtles lay their eggs by digging/removing sand at the beaches, cover the spot with sand and then leave the eggs unattended.
