In troubled waters 22.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
For centuries, people in India have known the stories of the 12 incarnations of Lord Vishnu including the Kurma (turtle) avatar. It is believed that this avatar helped the devas and the asuras churn out the amrut or life giving nectar from the ocean. In the scientific world, while there is little place for such mythological fiction, it is not wrong to assume that the turtles of our natural world are an important agent of life that are helping pass on crucial nutrients from the oceans to the lands. Because of their unusual life cycles, turtles spend their life in the seas but come on the shores for nesting and breeding thus enriching the energy-poor habitats on land such as the sandy beaches with marine nutrients. This simple ecological service by the turtles has been crucial in shaping the coastline of the country including that of Karnataka. And yet, the winds of change bring with themselves destruction, fragmentation and threats of poaching to the turtles, making it more and more difficult for them to ...
