Do you know about Velas & Velas Turtle Festival ?
Velas is a small village in Ratnagiri district. Velas Turtle Festival– the main attraction of Velas, organized by an NGO named Sahydri Nisarga Mitra. It is an initiative taken by the NGO and whole Velas villagers to preserve the turtles and provide the protection to their eggs. Villagers also provide the home stays and food to the tourists. From last few years, it has gained quite attention among the tourists and nature lovers. The festival was mainly focused on the turtles. I had actually witnessed the baby turtles hatching and their baby steps toward the sea.
