Solution

Conversations between volunteers and villagers

First Villager : Ya, you are able to see these eggs these days because the beach was sealed for the public for nearly a month, after they had caught some people smuggling silver bricks in the area.
Third Volunteer : But, how is that related to the eggshells?
First Villager : Nowadays the local people come out early in the morning and search the beach for these eggs. They then either eat the eggs or sell them in the market.
Second Volunteer : That is so disturbing! How do they find these eggs?
Second Villager :  The female turtle leaves a trail behind her after laying the eggs. The egg hunters follow this trail, dig up the pits, find a hundred to one hundred and fifty eggs and then steal them.
First Volunteer : That is so wicked!
First Villager :  Yes, it is, Sir. And if a female turtle is spotted while she is still laying her eggs, she is first allowed to lay her eggs and then, even she is caught and killed!
Third Volunteer : This is wrong and illegal! Sea turtles are given protection under Schedule 1 of the Indian Wildlife (Protection) Act 1972!
Second Volunteer : We need to take immediate action against this!
First Volunteer :  Yes, we need to protect these turtles!
First Villager : We are ready to help in any way possible.
Third Volunteer : Let’s do this!
