India may run out usable water in a few years 23.5.2017 TOI: India

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.
