Map of Ghost Nets – Indian Ocean

The maps below are visual representations of where ghost nets have been recovered and sea turtles rescued in the Indian Ocean since Olive Ridley Project’s data collection program began in mid-2013.


The Olive Ridley Project would like to thank everyone who has, and continues to contribute valuable information about ghost net recoveries and sea turtle rescues. Every little bit of data helps us keep the Indian Ocean cleaner and safer for vulnerable marine life!
