On 30 April 2024 Mongabay reported: This year, Bangladesh has seen its highest number of olive ridley turtle eggs, thanks to extensive conservation actions, including building awareness among local people and the vigilance of local conservation groups to ensure favorable conditions for the species. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

...Meanwhile, the government has initiated several actions to create a safe environment for turtles, including setting up conservation centers.

The government has set up five conservation centers in Cox's Bazar for breeding turtles, where hatchlings are artificially hatched. A nesting ground is made on the beach sand to release the eggs, which may cause a rise in the number of turtles coming to the beach and laying eggs safely, said Sarwar Alam, divisional forest officer of Cox's Bazar South Forest Division.

According to the 2015 fifth national report on Bangladesh biodiversity, turtle nesting grounds on beaches are destroyed due to development activities and increased tourist traffic. In addition, turtles die after being trapped in commercial fishing nets in the sea. Otherwise, the number of turtles and their eggs would be higher.

...Meanwhile, the Bangladesh government signed several international or regional agreements, conventions, treaties, and protocols related to the marine environment and biological resources that directly or indirectly affect marine turtles.
