1.     Read the following passage carefully.

The Chennai seacoast  is  a breeding  ground for the endangered Olive  Ridley  turtles.The 'Turtle Walk' is an initiative aimed at educating the fishing community and the general public living near the beach on the need to protect Oliver Ridley turtle and its turtle  nests.During the night, under normal conditions, the sea is a brighter source of light than the land.  But now with urbanization and nighttime lighting, the shore is brighter than the sea at night.  This distracts the Olive Ridley turtles that come ashore to lay eggs. Even the hatchlings get distracted.  Instead of going in the direction of the sea, the hatchlings and adults stray towards human habitations.

The volunteers,  during  their  walk, begin  their  enthusiastic  search for turtles  and their egg-laden nests. Some may be lucky enough to witness at close quarters, a large Turtle come ashore, dig its nest in the sand, lay eggs, cover the nest, and then walk back into the sea. The volunteers trace many such nests and dig out the Turtle  eggs.  While newborns are prone to attack by crows and dogs, adult trutles face the threat of being run over by vehicles.   

Eggs are collected  and carried back to the hatchery where they would  be kept safely  for hatching,  and once hatched, released  into the sea. They also rescue lone baby turtles, which could have been hatched from one of the undiscovered nests, and had strayed away on account of the distracting  lights  on the shore.  They carried them to the sea, and let  them free in the water.  The seven km walk on the beach lasts  four hours.

(a)     The Olive  Ridley  turtle  is  an  species  .

(i)     imperieced

(ii)    extinct
