A brief report on the monitoring of marine turtles on the Sao Sebastiao peninsula, Mozambique, from November 2013 to March 2014




All marine turtles are regarded worldwide as threatened or endangered and the leatherback turtle, which is often seen in Sanctuary waters, is currently classified as critically endangered. Marine turtles are generally seen as a charismatic and important component of tropical marine ecosystems and several species are routinely seen when snorkeling around Sanctuary. Many of the world’s remaining important marine turtle breeding areas are on islands but one of the few mainland areas, where turtles used to breed in large numbers, was on the east coast of the African continent.
