The Bhitarkanika Mangroves are home to 55 of Indias 58 known mangrove species. The mangroves harbor one of Indias largest populations of saltwater crocodiles, and Gahirmatha Beach, which separates the mangroves from the Bay of Bengal, is the worlds most important nesting beach for Olive Ridley Sea Turtles. The wetland also hosts a large and diverse population of resident and migratory birds. Boat safari here is an excellent way to explore the area.
