Pantai Samas Bantul, Yogyakarta, one of the places that are often encountered of Olive Ridley turtle (Lepidochelys olivacea). The aim of this research is to find out the influence of a shade from the success of hatching the eggs of Olive Ridley turtle (Lepidochelys olivacea) in semi natural nest in Samas Beach.

They are in natural nest, semi natural nest with the shade of zinc, and semi natural nest with the shade of tarpaulin. The results showed the temperature of the nest in the depth of thirty-eight centimeters at the semi natural nest with the shade of tarpaulin about 31,6-31,9 ºC, in the semi natural nest with the shade of zinc about 31,4-31,7 ºC, and in the natural nest is around 31,5-32,3 ºC. The highest moisture is in the natural nest around 6,6 %, while the lowest moisture is in the natural nest with the shade of zinc around 1,5-2,1%. Hatching succes in natural nest is 60 %, semi natural nest with the shade of tarpaulin about 24 %, in the semi natural nest with the shade of zinc about 21 %. The composition of the size of grains of sand in a natural or semi natural nest is dominated by medium-size.
