Implementation of the “Conservation Action Plan for Endangered Freshwater Turtles and Tortoises of India” is in its second successive year in the National Chambal Sanctuary. Due to high nest depredation rates from predators such as jackals (Canis aureus), three hatcheries have been established for incubation of the critically endangered Red Crowned Roofed Turtle, Kachuga kachuga and the Three Striped Roofed turtle, Kachuga dhongoka. Thermal incubation studies using temperatures data-loggers have been initiated to investigate the relationship of incubation temperatures and sex of turtles hatched. Depredation rates in unprotected nests are being quantified to assess the overall advantages of the hatch and release program. The impact of human activities on the ecology and reproduction of this last surviving population of K. kachuga is being assessed.
