The Students’ Sea Turtle Conservation Network beaches (SSTCN) is a voluntary group mainly comprising students who have been working in the beaches of Chennai since 1987 trying to conserve and create awareness about the endangered Olive Ridley sea turtle. They nest on our beaches at night, between January and March every year. During this season we walk on the beaches every night looking for their eggs which we collect and relocate to a safe place. When the turtle hatchlings emerge after 45 days, we release them safely into the sea. On Friday and Saturday nights we conduct a walk for interested people. We use this opportunity to interact with them and create awareness about the plight of an endangered species and the state of the environment. The walks are not for entertainment.

Owlie Summary in Tamil
பாயல் மற்றும் அவரது தாயால் மீட்கப்பட்ட ஆந்தை. ஆந்தை அவ்லி ஓர் அண்டை வீட்டாரால் கொண்டுவரப்பட்டது. அவர்கள் துண்டுதுண்டாக வெட்டப்பட்ட இறைச்சியை கொடுத்தார்கள். பாயல் ஆந்தையை கவனிக்கும் வேலையை ஏற்றுக்கொண்டார். ஆந்தை பறக்க கற்றுக்கொள்வதற்காக கூண்டு திறந்த நிலையில் நூலகத்தில் வைக்கப்பட்டு மற்ற கதவுகள் அனைத்தும் மூடப்பட்டன. ஆனால் ஒரு நாள், தோட்டவாசலும் திறந்தநிலையில் காணப்பட்டதால், நூலகத்தில் அவள் எங்கும் காணப்படவில்லை. காணாமல் போன ஆந்தை குறித்து நீண்ட நேரம் துக்கமடைந்த பிறகு ஆந்தை பற்றி மறக்க பேயல் ஒரு புத்தகத்தை வாசிக்க விரும்பினார். அவர் அலமாரியில் வந்தபோது ஒரு விந்தையான பொருளைக் கவனித்தார். திடீரென்று விந்தையான பொருள் கண்களைத் திறந்தது. ஆந்தை ஒரு விந்தையான பொருளாக நடித்தது. ஆந்தை திரும்பி விட்டதாக அவள் அம்மாவிடம் உற்சாகமாக கத்தினாள்.
