The Olive Ridley is a small sea turtle found primarily in tropical waters. Olive Ridleys are rare throughout most of their range are and are considered threatened, and endangered in their nesting Mexico population. The Olive Ridley is most famous for it's great nesting aggregations, sometimes referred to as arribadas. Although not all adult olive ridleys join arribadas, most do. While Arribadas are associated with strong offshore winds, certain phases of the moon and particular tides; nevertheless, there is a high degree of unpredictability at arribada sites.
