Event near Mumbai: Anjarle Turtle Festival on 7-8th April’18

The initiative is taken by Village Gram Panchayat, Sahyadri Nisargamitra, and Maharashtra Forest department to conserve Olive Ridley Turtle by protecting their eggs which were found at Anjarle beach near Mumbai. You can withness a baby turtle coming out of the egg and then finding its way to the Arabian Sea by those baby steps.

Anjarle beach is one of the finest beaches in the Konkan region. An unspoiled virgin beach covered with white sand and surrounded by palms is just the ideal destination for a long and refreshing weekend. The sand is white in color and reflects the sunlight above, making it shine like a layout of diamonds. The beach is also popular for the Kadyawarcha Ganpati temple located on a cliff and there is also a small port located near the mouth the Jog river which is a popular place visited by the tourists.
