Are we doing any good?

It was when I got myself involved in a event to save the Olive Ridley Turtles (see my other blog post - Eggs of a turtle), I wondered if we are doing any good.
I mean, when we take out the eggs from where it is layed and take it to a hatchery and ensure that all of the hatchlings reach the sea, are we not greatly tipping the odds? Ofcourse, care is take to replicate the original nest so that the male-female ration of the batch of the eggs remains the same, but on the survival front, are we doing any good?

When we release so many turtles into the sea, what is the effect on the ecology? Trolling does effect all marine life and not just these turtles. So, is it of any use when we just go ahead and save one such species?
