Rushikulya river

Rushikulya river is one of the major rivers in Odisha. It originates from Daringbadi hills in the Eastern Ghats and drains into the Bay of Bengal. The mouth of the Rushikulya River is close to the nesting site of olive ridley sea turtles. This year, annual large-scale testing of millions of olive ridley turtles near Rushikulya river is expected to not take place. Only sporadic nesting took place in the region in April.
