Meet the Six Young Eco-Crusaders who brought back endangered turtles at Astaranga Beach in Odisha

Six Young eco-warriors (Soumya, Dilip, Prabhakar, Santosh, Susant and Suman) launched an initiative called 'Devi Kachchhap Kalyanam' to clean up Astaranga beach, one of the 3 major nesting sites of Olive Ridley Turtles. Relentless in their endeavour, they pulled out over 5000 kg of waste from the 18 km long beach stretch in a month's time.
