Abstract:

The coastal areas of Pakistan are unique due to their ecology and biodiversity. Five species of marine turtles have been recorded from Pakistan. These are green turtle, olive ridley turtle, hawksbill turtle, loggerhead turtle and leatherback turtle. Out of these, only first two species are known to nest on the coastal areas of Sindh and Balochistan. Some of the coasts of areas of Pakistan are surveyed as globally important nesting habitats for two species of marine turtle, green turtle and olive ridley. Nesting of green turtle (Chelonia mydas) and olive ridley turtle (Lepidochelys olivacea) takes place at many places on the Hawkesbay and Sandspit along Karachi Coast, and Ormara and Jiwani along Balochistan coast.

A detailed survey of the nesting by green turtles on all the existing and potential turtle nesting sites was conducted. In Sindh Kapasee Point in Cape Monze area, sandy beaches in Khai and Patiani Creeks, and in Balochistan Wadh Bandar, Ras Malaan, Sapat area and Kund Malir in Hingol National Park, Kapasee area in Gwadar, Shadi Kaur area near Pasni, Pushkan Raank area, Ganz area and Astola Island have been identified as new turtle nesting sites.
