Ninjas for Turtles
On the occasion of World Turtle Day (23rd May), join us on a unique workshop in the National Chambal Sanctuary Project. In this workshop, we will learn more about the critically endangered Red Crowned Roofed Turtle (Batagur kachuga) and the Northern River Terrapin (Batagur baska). We will help release some very cute hatchlings into the river, learn more about the threats they face, work on a plan to help protect them and also learn a bit about turtle census
Friday: 22nd May
Early on Friday morning, we will be leaving in a large air-conditioned bus for Bah – a village near the National Chambal Sanctuary Project.
We will check into the air-conditioned Chambal Safari Lodge. After a sumptuous lunch, we would be briefed on biodiversity in the Chambal region before embarking on an exciting Nature Treasure Hunt around the lodge.
After the treasure hunt and tea, an interesting documentary on crocodiles would be shown.
This would be followed by dinner. An exciting day lies ahead.
Saturday: 23rd May
A day filled with activities! Early in the morning, we would all ride to the river banks. We would then take a boat across to a sandbank where World Turtle Day would be inaugurated. You would have a chance of helping release endangered turtle babies into the wild.
After that, you’ll be introduced to the world of turtles, participate in skits, learn about various ways in which wildlife research is done, go on a river safari to learn about the birds and to see the Gharials and the crocodiles of the area.
In the evening, we would have a special chat with you on what can we do to help conserve turtles.
Sunday: 24th May
Early today, we’ll hike near the Chambal Safari Lodge exploring some of the resident animals, birds and trees there. We will learn about the uses of these trees as well.
After a couple of exciting days in Chambal, all explorers would be heading back to Delhi after brunch. They would know much more about turtles and we would not be surprised if they bring their parents back to this place again.
