These Villagers Are Saving Endangered Olive Ridley Turtles, And You Can Join In Too

Well, some of those good people definitely live in Velas, a magical, sleepy little coastal village about 250km from Mumbai. Why is this place special you ask? The amazing humans of this village have taken it upon themselves to save tiny baby Olive Ridley turtles.
