The Organization
The Olive Ridley Project (ORP) is dedicated to removing and reducing the number of derelict fishing nets in the Indian Ocean and to protecting vulnerable marine turtles that fall victim to this ghost gear. We achieve this by training volunteers to remove derelict fishing gear, safely rescue trapped animals, and record important information about the gear and animals entangled in it. We attempt to mitigate this problem by promoting the recycling and reuse of end-of-life fishing equipment. Since 2013, our volunteers have recorded and disentangled more than 300 sea turtles and removed over 500 ghost nets from the Indian Ocean.
