A brief report on the 2014/15 monitoring of marine turtles on the Sao Sebastiao peninsula, Mozambique




This last season saw a substantial increase in the amount of turtle activity, confirmation that green turtles are nesting on Sanctuary and no reports of turtle poaching or nest robbing. Sanctuary turtle monitoring benefitted the local community, through monitor salaries, while the community responded with less disturbance of turtles. Since the first year of real protection, numbers of turtle nests have increased markedly and last year’s total was the highest yet recorded. The around 25 kilometres of shore patrolled by Sanctuary is effectively the only area where it is safe for turtles to nest for many hundreds of kilometres north and south of Sanctuary.
