Olive Ridley and Green Turtle

Olive Ridley and green turtles are the most common marine turtles in Bangladesh. Both are threatened at their nesting beaches and at sea from entanglements in fishing gear. WCS Bangladesh is working with fishermen to release turtles that are found alive in fishing gears and reduce entanglements in their core habitat.
