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


2013-2014


Up to five species of marine turtle are reported to have bred on the shores of Mozambique (Louro et al, 2006: Fernandez et al, 2014). In the past, however, information was scanty, often only colloquial and sometimes misleading. In recent years more attention has been paid to the situation and slowly better information and more accurate data have been obtained (Louro et al, 2012; Pereira et al, 2009; Videira et al, 2010). Efforts have been made to collate and organize the available historical data and combine this with current information (Louro et al, 2012; Pereira et al, 2009; & Videira et al 2010; Louro et al, 2012; Fernandez et al, 2014) and this is leading to a much better understanding of the status of marine turtles in Mozambique.
